Just recently after 50% of my flights, I switch the Mavic off and the top light on the battery (light closest to the gimbal) is flashing for approx 10 seconds (but does vary a bit).
This isn't the light that indicates the lowest power on the battery (i.e the light closest to the tail of the Mavic) And once when I plugged it into the charging hub the same light would flash and the battery won't charge. I put the battery aside for 5-10 mins and plugged it in again and it charged fine.

From what I can guess, this may be heat related as that would probably make sense that plugging it straight in when it felt quite warm would stop it from charging but why after the majority of flights I make.

No errors on the RC.

Any help or info would be appreciated

That would be "LED4". According to the manual, blinking twice per second means its temperature is too low and three times (as apparently in this case) it's too high. It's giving you that warning because charging when it's still hot isn't good for the battery.

That makes perfect sense. Thanks very much!
