Of course you should check your oil level first. You can reset it by turning the key to acc and pumping on the gas four times(I think thats how to reset it you can search for resetting oil light). If you keep having a problem after you reset the check oil I would have it looked at. The reason i asked about the oil pressure light is because I had a problem with that and ended up having to replace my engine. Most cars don't have both an oil pressure and check oil light so many don't know the difference including Sears auto center but thats another story. Good luck!
