Since you don't have a manual, here are the three you need to worry about (other than the VERY obvious, the CEL, the brake, and the battery lights)
The little oil can on the left side of the cluster is oil pressure, and if the oil pressure light is coming on, you either have a bad sending unit, or you are pretty much shafted... the oil pressure light doesn't come on unless the pressure is REALLY Low. The gauge is the warning, the light comes on when it is too late (something like 2-3 psi).
On the right side of the cluster are two more, the one on the bottom, with the little vertical lines is the sensor in your radiator overflow bottle.
The one you are wondering about from your original problem is right above the radiator indicator, it is for windshield washer fluid level. when it comes on, check the fluid, but don't sweat it if the fluid is full, the sensor gos bad, mine went bad a while ago, and my light has been on in my 94N/A for the last 50k miles or so. This is one light it doesn't hurt too much to ignore.

Your car is most likely obd2 compliant (in the US everycar built after 1996 is) this means your check engine light could be on for a whole list of reasons, You will need an obd2 scanner to plug into the diagnostics connector to read the codes. Many times car parts places will let you use theres, hoping to sell you parts when you know what needs to be fixed. If the use of free one is not available you can probably buy one off of ebay for not too much. Use the code scanner, write down the codes and google them and/or buy a haynes manual that will explain how to do all these things.
