Remove any heat shrink so you can see the complete battery. If you see any white powder or corrosion around the positive lead of one of the cells , it is probably toast. The seal has given out. Pitch it. Chances are you have at some time or other, charged it at to high a rate or for to long.

You COULD try cycling it, but batteries are cheap. I'd toss it and feel more secure with a new pack.
