that means the login server is down

check http://help.mojang.com/ for the up to date status of all servers

I've had the same problem and all I did was extract the .zip file from the folder you downloaded and use that instead. It works for me. Hope I helped.

A 504 response means that the servers are not up and running. You can try again soon. Also, visiting http://help.mojang.com/ would be beneficial. They have a nice little bit of JavaScript that alerts you of the statuses of all Minecraft services.
