You need to have your brakes inspected by a professional. The lights indicate that ABS and traction control are not working...although brakes will work without these features, a humming noise can indicate more problems to come.

Cheapest option would be to have the fault code read by a dealer or specialist. Its likely to be a wheel speed sensor but its finding which one that's the problem. You could disconnect each one and take an ohms reading across the connections. They should all be the same or there abouts. Change the one thats not. If your lucky the light may extinguish. If not the fault will need to be cleared using diagnostic equipment.

Anti lock brakes and traction control are operated off of the axles, they will have ridges or splines on them for the sensors to read. They get rusty or brake dust on them. You need to wire brush them off and spray wd-40 on them. If not it would be an electronic sensor gone bad.

You need to get up to speed education wise in a hurry
Those check light have been govt mandated and on vehicles for 30 years
You surely have heard of the diagnostic connector under the dash on the
drivers side,required on all OBD2 Vehicles (1996 -2011)
Now you need to have a code reader or a scan tool, put on the connector
and check for the codes that set the traction and engine lights, on the dash
Using those codes,you proceed to diagnose and repair, the powertrain
You do not need to get to a dealer. They have nothing special to offer
