Limp Mode & Engine/Turbo whine

Help needed my 2013, 1.6tdi S-Line DSG went into Limp Mode with the Engine Management Light (coil symbol) flashing and a whine from my engine compartment. Managed to make it home on the motorway but the engine lacked power and up hills maximum speed of 40mph luckily heavy traffic on the M1. No other warnings on the dashboard, no issues with smoke from the exhaust and engine itself felt fine apart from the lack of power. Could it be the turbo or what else could it be? Need to visit the stealer on Monday expecting a large bill or are turbos covered under warranty?

Any suggestions would be useful.

Yep sounds like turbo but need to get it looked at, could be a pipe come off.
