Water in Fuel

I am the new owner of a 1997 F350 with the 7.3 liter and have some questions for the experts. Went to the dunes camping and on the way back, I filled up at a grocery store filling station. Half way home, the water in fuel light came on and then slowly went out. The light came back on, flickered, then went out. The light came back on and stayed on. What is the recommended fix for water in diesel? Is there an additive I can put in the diesel. Do I need to do something right away?

The level was down to the red on the gauge.

Thats why water will float on the top and when it runs low it'll suck that up. Drain your fuel bowl and pick up some water treatment for DIESELS.
