Just put some air in it and drive it to a good tire shop (i.e. one competent at breaking/reseating high performance tire beads). As long as the puncture is small and in the tread, you're good to go.
Yes I just called my local Discount Tire they said they could fix it for free if the puncture is in the tread. Also I checked the tire warranty and if the tires are OE Road Hazard is not covered.

Since I re-inflated the tire yesterday have not seen the warning again so wondering if I do actually have a puncture.
