That sounds like the light warning of low brake fluid in the reservoir. As the pads wear the fluid level drops as the fluid goes to the caliper to keep it full. This is normal. Check the level in the reservoir.

It may also be cause by the brake pedal going too far to the floor but you would probably notice that.

I have a dash warning light that has just started to stay on. I do not know what the light means. It is a red circle with two short arcs running vertically outside the main circle and has an explanation...

It's the "abs" light. To find out why it's on you need to take it to your mechanic and let him run a diagnostics test on it. Alot lot of the times it's just a faulty sensor that causes it to come on, but better safe than sorry.
