2003 Nissan Altima Question: stalling issues

 

Question

My altima has been working fine up until today ... I tried starting my car but its stalling. Put it in drive gave it gas but it didn't move .. so I put in park then back to drive. It pulled off but no matter far the peddle was down it wouldn't go pass 30mph . The battery/sevice engine light were both on. Then after about 5 miles it picked up speed and was back to normal. Could anyone please help me out with this problem? Thank You!
