Hi,
Check settings in the charger for max capacity of the LiPo You charge. It might be that You have it set to 5000 mAh max capacity for this LiPo in the charger.
Check the manual for the charger to change this.

That might be quite reasonable. The charger is telling you what it but back in. Unless the battery was completely discharger (very bad) it will not take 5800mah to recharge it.

You have to note the battery/cell voltage(s) before you start the charge to be able to get an idea how much the battery will take to reach a full charge.
LiPo cell full =4.2V, 50% = about 3.85V, empty = 3.0V.
