    Check fluid level in the brake fluid resivoir. Likely its a bit low and it has a level sensor to turn that light on to indicate a low fluid level. The fluid level goes down as the disc brake pads wear down. Might want to get brake system checked to be on the safe side.

    Fluid level low or park brake warning light 'switch' not working properly.
