Steve, the first thing to check is the fluid level in the master, if it's low you probably need a brake job! As the pads wear, the pistons in the calipers push farther outward, as this happens the fluid in the master reservoir fills the bores, dropping the level in the resv. When it gets low enough, the light turns on. Dont just add fluid, whe the calipers are pushed back during pad replacement, it fills the master back up. The grinding is the ABS motor pumping the brakes, it's normal.
