    Did you check your oil level?

    If your oil isn't low... I'd be concerned about it. How old is the car? Any modifications?

    Bad sender, bad pump, or failed oil pickup tube are my guesses.

    I probably wouldn't drive the car until I got it checked out.

    the light went on... it doesn't matter if it were just for a second, or for an hour. It's enough of a warning that you should be concerned about whether or not your oil pickup is cracked, or if your pump is on it's last leg. If your pump gives out, or your oil pickup cracks... you could be buying a new engine.
