Default Bootloader unlock allowed: YES

So..my xperia z (first one) had some problems with the back and water got in, and oRange gave me another new one back..

The thing is that the new one has " bootloader unlock allowed: yes"...

If its yes..this means that I can install a recovery without losing my waranty...and the bootloader is unlocked ? Or what

No it means that you can unlock your bootloader which will void your warranty and enable you to install custom kernels but remember to back up your ta partition before unlocking. Custom recovery can be installed on a locked bootloader anyway.
