Absolutely, take it to the dealer and have them look at it. Only they know how to acknowledge any existing or developing issues and how to properly resolve them.
If I recall correctly, you have a CVT model, correct? If so, schedule something as soon as possible and instruct them to report on the state and condition of all systems in addition to the symptoms you are reporting. They will then let you know what they find.
A fault code relating
A fault code relating to the evaporative system may be as simple to solve as re-seating the gas cap with a couple of extra clicks or a leaking seal or damaged filler tube that really requires professional attention.
At this point I would attempt to re-seat the gas cap and see if the code goes away. Give it a couple of days as it may take that long to clear. To speed up the process just disconnect the 12V battery for a couple of minutes. While you are re-seating the gas cap have a look at the seals on the cap and the general appearance of the filler tube and look for any signs of damage.
If the codes do not go away, then it is time to take it in for them to look at it.

The noise could be what was
The noise could be what was described in the manual as a noise resulting from a build up of gasoline impurities in the engine. The manual states that you should use gasoline containing engine cleaners (Maybe Chevron gasoline) and that it is designed to run within specific tolerances of trace elements only. Hope that helps.
