First, try restarting your Mac with the mouse (or equivalent) L-button held down to Force-Eject. If there's nothing in the drive, nothing will happen.

Yes, take your Mac back to where you bought it, and let the techs fix it. You should not be charged anything for repair.

L is for left. If you are using a single button mouse just hold down as you reboot.

I think he's using the trackpad on his Macbook Harry, but don't they have a couple of buttons directly above or below the pad for the "equivalent" of the L & R mouse buttons? I've never used a Mac laptop trackpad to be honest, preferring to hook a mouse in.
