What should I do?
Well, I wait until I'm at 75% of the projected FG, then do the diacetyl rest if it's needed. You don't want to rack until your beer is finished- because the lagering will stop the fermentation if it's not done.
Pitching a lager so warm (that's even too warm for ale yeast pitching temperatures!) will mean that you may have quite a bit of fruity flavors.
If it was me right now, I'd wait until FG is reached, then rack and lager. I'd suggest lagering for quite a while, due to some possible issues with the high temperature pitching. So, if the SG doesn't change in the next couple of days, go ahead and rack the beer then lager at 34 degrees for at least 8 weeks or so. That might smooth out any off-flavors you may have.
