From what I gather, It seems you have water or something wrong with your oil. I would change it...yes. If the oil quality is poor, that could have been a reason for the seizure. I would be concerned that damage has not already occured.

I wouldn't just go buy a piston...check first....you said something siezed....you need to find out what...tear into it and inspect the parts, maybe you will need a piston, maybe the bottom end went. the only way to tell is to take her down. THEN buy parts.
