Slight overfill is ok. Too much in excess would cause performance loss, high blowby gases and oil can be pressurrised into the air intake system resulting in smoke emission.

Draining off the excess would be the easiest solution.

Check the brake lights. One or more of the bulbs should be faulty. That is the brake bulb failure indicator.
