Dude, I would check the oil level on your car If it is proper within the specifications on the dipstick I will suggest that you check your oil pump or take your car to get it service by a professional because your crankshaft bearings can be bad and it is loosing pressure or your camshaft sensor can be bad

-or get the oil changed, of you have a valve cover leak you can lose oil that way which will lower your oil level and cause the light to come on.
