The headlight on the the driver side is having some sort of problems. It can be a bad HID bulb or a poor contact. The wires inside the headlight may be damaged as well.

You are fine driving the car. You may loose the left headlight operation when driving. I would let the dealer diagnose it with their star scanner. There is a good chance they will have to replace the headlight.

Would love to know what they find out.

I would check the bulb for the left headlgiht. If it is halogen it is easy to tell if it has burned. If the bulb is fine, take it to the dealer.
