I checked the brake fluid level in the reservoir and it is full. Any thoughts? The car seems to stop fine when driving and really no difference than before.

Check the flote in the master cylinder. Try un plugging the sensor @ the flote. And try un plugging the parking prake switch to see if the light goes out

Would you say it is safe to drive about 10 miles until I get home tonight to check?

What are my scenarios when I check these? If I unplug the sensor and the light goes out? What does that tell me? If I unplug the emergency brake switch and it goes out? What then? Sorry I'm a novice, but dad will be here tonight and knows a lot more about the car.

Is it possible that the brake pads have sensors in them that are telling me they need to be replaced?

No, brakes pads do not have any sensors to tell you when pads are worn out.

If it is the word BRAKE, then you have a blown brake bulb. If it is the park brake indicator that is showing, then it most probably is due to low brake fluid level, which could mean a leakage somewhere or the pads are wearing out soon.

KHLow. Your statements are opposite of what the manual is telling me. The red word BRAKE is what's showing up, which talks about checking the break fluid

Is it the sign Brake with a bracket? If yes, then it is the brake fluid level that you need to check. If the indicator is below the door ajar, then it is the brake blubs.
