Is it normal when Wifi is on and being used for battery to go down from 100% to 97% in 2 mins?

Yes. WiFi sucks juice like little else - the big bright modern screens aside. Also, those percentage battery indicators are merely a graphical representation of what your OS calculates to be the expected battery life span. So, as it's assuming wifi is ON for good, it'll indicate less battery left. It's awfully complicated, and very guess-y.

The best thing you can do is to disable the battery % display and not worry about it. Zen.
