Look around the master cylinder, wheel cylinders and flexible lines.

  • You don't state if you actually have a problem,or if you are just checking.

The brake fluid level will drop as the disc pads wear and the pistons move out to compensate.Probably the biggest actual leak source is the rear wheel cylinders mentioned above,(Unless you have four discs)?you need to remove the brake drums to check these.Post again with more info if this is no help.

brake warning light on can mean your handbrake is engaged or that brake fuild is low. Those would be the first two easy things to check. If your brake fluid is low, you will need to keep a close eye on that, as you may have a leak and that can lead to a loss of your brakes.
