Cool New S class with water leaking onto piston

Help! Water level light came on. Found water on piston. The service guy says to just keep driving the car for the next two weeks while we wait in Hawaii for parts. He says there is not that much of a leak. I assume blown head gasket and he also suggested seals on "valve cooling tubes". Am I in trouble?
Aloha and Mahalo for your thoughts.

You're not "in trouble" if your car is still under warranty, but it will be in for fixing for a few days.
