I was driving when the oil pan light came on, I checked the oil, and antifreeze, they were full, goes off, then a few minutes later illuminates back on?

If there is knocking or ticking from the engine when the light is on, you need to have the oil pressure checked. You can do it yourself by getting a mechanical oil gauge from a parts store. Many will lend them to you. If there is no noise, chances are the oil pressure sensor is bad. Replace it.
