It's nothing you have to concern yourself with at this time, and can just use propane to heat your water (I would go ahead and turn the electric switch on the face of the water heater to off). Your water heater has a built in thermostat/eco reset (it's that button you pushed under the rubber cover) and when operating correctly the burner will turn itself off when the water heats up to a preset temp.
It's explained in the link I provided earlier.
