1. The crawl should answer your question, as well. It clearly says a Jedi battle fleet
. Implying more than one ship.
2. There's no evidence suggesting that the Endar Spire was a flagship in any sense of the word. In fact, knowing the Jedi, they would probably intentionally place Revan and his 'guardian' Jedi on a ship of relatively low standing in the fleet.
As for the mission the Endar Spire was on, it could have been as simple as a supply run, or a patrol of the Republic border territories. We don't know the composition of the rest of the fleet she was with, nor of the condition of the war-time borders.
