Okay, another person chiming in to tell you the same thing.

DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR.
You could have a small crack in your oil pickup tube that is being masked by the fact you now have too much oil in your engine. Should that crack turn into a snapped tube, it's game over.

If you do not posess the mechanical ability, tools, or confidence to remove your oil pan, then have the car TOWED to a garage you trust to have them do it. At that point, you may as well replace the pickup just for peace of mind. If the light still is on after that, have an oil pressure check done with a gauge.

If you ignore the good advice you have received here, please do not come back on starting a thread like "my engine blew, what should I do now?"
