Dash brake light blinking and beeping

So I was driving today and on a slight downward hill, I was stopped at a light, applying the amount of pressure I normally would for such a decline, when I feel myself rolling forward. I jam the brake in all the way and I stop, but my brake dash light comes on and the dash beeps like when I leave my lights on after I shut the engine off. The light then flashes a few times.

Anyone know what this means? Do I need to change my brake fluid, check the brake pads? Never had this problem before. Thanks.

which means you should still check for leaks, although it was probably just caused by the momentum (slosh), better safe than sorry though.

Definitely low on fluid. Follow all your lines and look for the leak or you're going to be going head first into something you don't want to be heading head first into.

I checked the fluid and brake pads... Everything looked to be in order.. So I fiddled with the cable that runs to my parking brake... And then that seemed to fix it. Few days later though, brake light is back on and beeping, and no amount of fiddling has done it. I'm pretty stumped..

The brake light comes on when 1) low on brake fluid or 2)ebrake lever is lifted. If you're not low on fluid, then it's the ebrake lever switch.
