It looks like that spring is the seal spring. It also looks like the dirt/water seal is toast. If I were you, i'd replace bearings and seals before leaving. The wheel seals are a consumable, then get chewed up under normal use. WHen the are bad, they let water and dirt into the hub, which can then get to the bearings. I'd put fresh in.
