Duke 2015 engine leak

Picked a duke a couple of months ago, 2015 model with 5k oddo(km).
I've been smelling a burning smell after riding it at first, then, on colder night rides, noticed that steam is coming out from the cat area.
After a quick investigation I found out that there's a small leak from the engine(oil must've been leaking on the cat causing the smell and the steam), nothing too serious I guess.
The bike is still under warranty.
The question is should I be worried about it or wait for another 500 km till service on 7.5km? Thank you.

I would at least call the dealer and report it -- and document your call with dated and timed notes. You want to avoid the claim that you made it worse by not addressing the issue.
