Hi Div. You'll have to make seat reservations for the entire leg up to Arth Goldau if you want to remain in the same seat. The Swiss timetable allows you to book a ticket including seat reservation for the entire leg, and including the free trip up from the Swiss border with your Swiss Pass. In order to do so, enter your trip, choose your connection, click 'Fare/Buy' and enter the order procedure. When asked for a reduction option, select 'GA' (this equals the Swiss Pass in terms of free taveling and discounts) in either 1st or 2nd class.
