2017 Forester 2501ts leaking already?

I'll keep it short. Picked up the rv on the 9th of feb. It rained last week and find water pooled up behind the driver seat. Not much, but concerning. I dried it up and waited for next bout of rain... Same thing happened. Called warranty department. Still waiting to hear back. A bit worried. Anyone else have this issue??

My Forester 2701ds has the dinette slideout right behind the driver's seat. I did have a leak while the slide was out during heavy rain. My dealer said the rubber seals were flexed and allowed water to enter. But I think it was because my MH wasn't level and was lower on the passenger side causing the rain water on the top of the slide to pool next to the MH rather than drain to the outside. My slideout's roof slants away when the MH is level.
Another issue I had was I could see light coming up from the seam exactly where your photo was taken. Between the rubber floor and the carpet. The factory didn't seal the it and left a 3/8" gap. The dealer fixed it.
Is your slide in or out when leak was found?
Also check the cabover area and the side window for leaks. Rain entering could run down the cab over base and drip in that area too!
