Question about Cars & Trucks
It is indicating the MPG being shown is the overall average, as opposed to the instant average. Not a warning or anything, just an obscure car thing.

SOURCE: Sensor Lights
Based on your description, if it is red that would be the "Brake System" warning light. This warning light indicates that the hand brake or the park brakes are engaged. Alternately, this could also indicate that the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir is below nominal. Top off brake fluid if low and have your brake pads checked as well as visually inspect for any possible brake fluid leak.
On the other hand if it is yellow that would be the ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Momentary lighting up would be normal at startup but consistent light would indicate a malfunction in the brake system such as either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid level and have your vehicle's brakes checked.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Have the brake pads checked
For your own safety: use only
brake pads that BMW has
released for your particular vehicle
model. BMW cannot evaluate nonapproved
brake pads to determine if
they are suitable for use, and therefore
cannot ensure the operating safety of
the vehicle if they are installed.<

Testimonial: "Thank you so much. I guess i shouldnt be driving it around at all then until i get it fixed?"
Check your brake pads for wear. If worn replace. If not check the wires
to the pads. If these wires are broken...the light will illuminate
although the brake pads may be fine
Good luck with it
