Hi and welcome to Fiat Forum,

Firstly as the car is presumably still under warranty, you really should get it serviced at a authorised (FCA) service center/dealer. Note that they won't reset the service indicator unless they also did the service for legal reasons. You can reset it your self using Multiecuscan www.multiecuscan.net, a Elm327 interface (get a "modified" one like http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271275445368 I've used this seller) and a laptop. Cost is 50 Euros for the software and 17 for the interface.
I can't say enough how important it is to get the service done by an authorised gararge especially if you have an extended warranty or finance / PCP on the car. I know somone who had a Nissan on a PCP and got the service done at a cheap garage. The engine trashed itself (not due to garage, known issues with Renault engines fitted to some nissans) and now they are facing a multithousand bill for a new engine, Nissan refuse to pay even though it's a known issue and the finance company are threatening penalties too.... A Fiat engine will never blow up but if it did it's too late to go back and correct the service record.
