Water in tank??

Hello All,
I have a C 180 2013, and stopped at a fuel station and filled my tank
Seconds after the tank was full, the car started shaking and i could see white smoke couming out of the exhaust for around 30 seconds.
I drove the car for 5 min while it shivvered and was losing power from time to time.

I did a uturn to go back to the station and i could see the engine check light on.

After few minutes, the car felt fine, no more loss of power and today i am driving it normally without any issue.
Could it be some water that were burned and that's it? Shall i do anything? Or just let it pass for now.
The engine check light is still on as it needs mechanic to turn it off.

Please let me know

Do you have access to an OBD-II reader?
