Brake fluid level is low.

Check the wear of pads and discs first, as this is usually the cause.

Yep, I would definately check the brake fluid. I had this on an old pug 306 many moons ago. Thought it was liekly to be a sensor or soemthing and ignored it, 30 minutes later - NO brakes!! (a brake line had split and every time i pressed the brakes it squirted a bit more fluid out)
Get the discs and pads checked first. All well and good people saying check and top up the fluid but it's not alot of use topping that up if your pads are down to the back plates and the discs are wafer thin.
