They will notify you if they want to take it any further. the invigilator is probably just referring it to the exam officer as an irregularity.
I've looked at the rules, but check with the exam officer.
The only headings I could see would be the possibiliyu the lable was classed as unathorised wrotten material or more likely it was a breach of exam regulations. Im assuming it says water bottles must be clear and without labels?
Introduction of unauthorised material into the examination room, for example:1. Bringing into the exam room notes in the wrong format or prohibited annotations-notes/annotations go beyond what is permitted but do not give an advantage
2. Notes, study guides and personal organisers- notes irrelevant to subject
Breaches of examination conditions
3. A breach of the instructions or advice of an invigilator, supervisor, or the awarding body in relation to the examination rules and regulations
-minor non-compliance; e.g. sitting in a non-designated seat; continuing to write for a short period after being told to stop
Imo I wouldnt worry. the invigilator might make a report to the exam officer (who you can contact), the exam iffcer investigates and see if there has been a breach. If they decide they wnat to take it further, then they have to give you an opportunity to take it further. From the facts you gave, then the infringement looks as though it falls into the level of offences as quoted. Thye might even decide its not worth bothering with. The penalty for the above is a warning, the lowest level so it wouldnt affect your exams. I doubt they will bother. For it to be in the next category where there are implications it would have to be a najor non compliance or relevant notes.
Talk to your exam officer to give you peace of mind, then remove it from your head and focus on your next exams.
