The design of an oil pressure sensor must be tougher than rocket science; the failure rate is awful high for the simple task it performs.
This is a common failure and they are generally not terribly expensive to replace. They are supposed to make contact if the pressure falls below ~ 4 PSI, a level that pretty much tells you to STOP and add oil because at that pressure, there could already be some damage to bearing surfaces. The typical range is ~ 30-60 PSI for proper lubrication and (oil) cooling without blowing gaskets sealing the oil channels.
As you wrote, the engine isn't rattling; just replace the sensor.

this is not a problem
what had happen is that the clips might not just clip into place anymore
just pick up a new one and stick it in
you need to get the right one for your car tho as if you don't it may not give the right reading

Sounds like fuel in oil obviously. Don't run it until you cure problem !! You may have a an injector leaking down or something. If your fuel is mixing with oil, it's just a matter of time before it seizes if you keep running it. Has it had starting problems lately?

Sometimes the dealership will forget to reset the oil light after changing the oil. It is there to remind you when it is time to get it changed. If you call them and let them know that they forgot to do it, they will probably just walk you through it. Also, check to make sure the put the oil cap back on ticht. It is not the dipstick, but the larger cap on the top of the engine that reads "oil".
