Issue with 105 hydraulic brakes

I purchased a 2020 Domane SL5 new three months ago. I'm pretty sure it has the Shimano 105 R7020 sti shifters. I noticed yesterday that the left (front) brake lever does not return to the full released position after I apply the brakes. It only returns about half way and the pads are still lightly in contact with the rotor. I have to use my fingers to push the lever back. The springy feeling of the right brake is absent in the left one. Since this is my first hydraulic brake bike, I plan to take it back to the LBS and have them look at it but I have a few questions:
  1. What happened to the springy feeling?
  2. When I apply brakes, why do both levers reach the bar tape?
  3. I read you should not turn your bike upside down, how do you change flats?
Any answers would be appreciated.
