Just add brake fluid, it may look like the level is fine but just add some anyways. That should make it stop! I had the same thing happen to me.

Not a problem, the light doubles as a low fluid light

You should check all of your brake pads for wear. As they wear out, the brake fluid level in the master cylinder begins to drop because the pistons in the calipers become further and further extended and they require more brake fluid to fill the increased volume.
When the brake fluid level becomes low enough to trigger the warning lamp, it's usually a good indication that the pads are worn out on at least one of the axles.
