Oil pressure light is blinking.

It's very possible a coincidence and that the flashing oil light is the oil pressure switch. I'd check it out immediately to make sure there's sufficient oil flowing through the engine. Merely jump starting the car shouldn't have knocked anything loose so to be on the safe side, assume there's an oil pressure issue. You were right to not use the car in the interim.

2002 VW Beetle Temp gauge flashing, why?

i had this exact same problem on my 2002 New Beetle GLS 2.0L. i tried adjusting coolant/water ratios, i tried changing the thermostat, but finally i accepted the inevitable and had my water pump replaced. the 2.0L Beetles (i am assuming your car is a 2.0L, correct me if i am wrong) have a plastic impeller inside the water pump. these impellers are very prone to cracking and then disintegrating themselves (which was the case with mine). i had it replaced along with my timing belt (the water pump runs off the timing belt) and it only cost me around $400 dollars. i have driven my car almost 10,000 miles since then and have not had a problem with overheating. i hope this helps.

If the light goes out after engine gets alittle warm, this is normal. Since there is no temp guage, VW uses this light to inform that the engine is cold. When that same light flashes red, it means that the coolant is low or the engine is overheating.
