Hello Check the fluid level in the brake reservoir under the bonnetbut I suspect the cause of your issue is water inside 1 or more of the connectors to the brake pads as they feature a wear monitoring circuit and if this circuit was shorted out it will turn on the brake light so providing the fluid level is OK and the car stops as it should with no rumbling noises or pulling to 1 side then you shoudl be fine to drive it homealternatively any small independent garage could take a quick look a the brake pad electrical connections and clean them out for you
