What is my plant trying to tell me? Am I under-watering it, not enough light.. too much? Its new so I haven't had much time with it yet. Any advice would be appreciated.

looks normal to me, leaves and pitchers don't last forever. If you just got it the stress of change will make it drop pitchers. As far as watering it just don't let it 100% dry and have holes in the pot so water can drain out.(no water treys) If you cant keep up with watering go buy some long fiber sphagnum moss and pack it around its current media in a larger pot.

Okay, so over it looks okay. I'm alright on the watering bit I suppose, just wasn't sure if it was going through a normal thing and loosing its pitchers or it was stressed out. I'll keep the sphagnum idea in mind, I have quite a bit already so I can use it if I need it.
