What you're seeing is normal. The preferred spec is -1degree of camber with an acceptable tolerance up to -2.33 degrees.

That's probably due to the toe setting. Have the alignment done but don't expect the wheel to be standing up straight when done.

I agree, get a rear alignment done new tyres are replace the struts if they are at all suspect.
