4 days old and check engine light??

I got my 2013 Focus 4 days ago, and it was love at first sight/drive. And, no joke, my check engine light is on. Have the fancy myFord Touch thing, and ran the diagnostic. Said to open and close my fuel door. Light is still there.

When accelerating from a stop, the car seems to kind of chug, almost, like it's not connecting with the gears, or is slipping somehow. Maybe a fuel problem? When I get going, it's fine. I noticed that my gas mileage and usage was TERRIBLE and think that they are all somehow related.

Going to call dealership tomorrow (just got home from work an hour agoish), but am devastated.

Has this happened to anyone?
