I had the samething happen to my Jetta. I took it to the dealer and nothing was wrong.
I would think it's safe to drive until Monday when the VW shop opens.
My 2 cents

Yes, it can be anything and you may need to have the codes check, but it can be nothing to be found.
I do have the same problem in my accord and elantra, when their milage counter up to a defined number, their mil will remind you to take them to have a body checkup. they may have nothing wrong!
Simply disconnect the battery "+" connector and wait for around 1/2 hour, connect the power back on, the counter should be reset. if the mil return back on right a way, definately it needs to be fixed. otherwise, it is in a good shape and can be run until the next milage counter set.

Sounds like your o2 sensors are screwed up. there are 2 o2 sensors on the 1.8t (one before the catalytic converter and one after). The computer on your car uses data from the sensors to adjust the fuel mixture for your car. It sounds like it's running too rich which can cause detonation inside the piston. This is VERY bad for your pistons. Take it in to the shop and get OEM o2 sensors. Don't buy anything aftermarket.
