I had left my bike on the porch upside-down (on top of seat & handlebars) over the course of the day. When I come back home from school, I go to ride my bike and I find that I have a serverly warped rim (or tire????) I have no idea how that could of happened, it was not there before.
P.S..... It did rain that day? Could that have caused the problem. And does this mean that I am going to have to get a new rim/tire or just have me LBS fix it?

Not really. Don't feel like fully explaining but some parts on x-mart bikes are going to be very strong, but very very heavy.
Besides it 99% impossible for your bike to 'suddenly' get a warp. I think someone (you, friend, neighbour, brother) probably abused it and it warped after you put it on the porch. If it did just 'warp' out of nowhere then you have issues.
Also how badly warped and how long have to had the wheels. There is a setting in period where wheels may go out of true slightly and need retruing. It happens.
