    You will be okay until Saturday, that meter gives you a warning until it's time to change your oil but nothing mechanical is going to happen unless you ignore it totally. Check your owners manual to see how many miles the percentages are set upon, if it's 3000 miles then the meter gets you in to the dealer to make them money. Oil changes can go much farther today than before, some owners manuals will tell you suggested oil change intervals can be farther apart.
