I just recently got my oil changed about a week and a half ago. Ever since then when I would drive it and get to my destination I would get out after turning off the car but it still sounds like something is running from under the hood. Should I be worried about that? And also I just tried to go run an errand but my car wouldn't start. The lights came on and it was making the dinging sound when I put the key in the ignition but wouldn't start. What do I do?

1. clogged inlet or worn out oil pump gears: change oil pump
2. Engine is tired and has leaky loose bearings and journals, hemorrhaging oil out all internally bleeding places. Engine flush unclogged the varnish that was holding oil pressure up. Rebuild engine or change when current engine blows.
3. Bad oil pressure sensor causing strange readings. Diagnose actual oil pressure and change sensor if needed.
These vintage honda engines are everywhere for cheap at junkyards. i wouldnt pay more than 350 for one.
I would suggest you have your oil pump checked this may be faulty i had a similar problem .I stopped to check the oil level it was ok, i thought it was a faulty indicator and i knocked a bearing as it was the pump
Here is what I would do. Fill up the oil so it reads full on the dipstick. Drive it for a couple of days and then check the oil level. If its down a half a quart or more than you have a serious issue and more than likely an external leak. If it is leaking that ba than it should be fairly obvious where the leak is coming from and a visual inspection under the hood and under the car should reveal the source of the leak.
