In the first video the status panel moved in the x direction. Was this done with events?
If so when setting the parallax to 0,0 , you should remove these events.
Also If you want the status panel to be above everything else it would be a good idea to have it on the top layer. (I got the idea from the video it wasn't).
Also you should place your panel inside the dotted line, for that represents the viewport when game is playing.
