Default 09 wrx ebrake problem

Hey guys have an issue that I can't seem to figure out any help would be much appreciated. I have a 2009 Wrx sedan and the past few weeks I've had a problem. When I'm i take off(faster than normal ) my brake light on the dash comes on. My ebrake handle is also a little bit loose. So this weekend I tried to tighten the ebrake by takin off the rear wheels and going into the plug and spun the ebrake adjuster ten clicks still the ebrake was not tight and now the at this point the rotor wouldn't spin anymore. So I spun it back to how it was. Today I thought maybe it was the ebrake handle so I floored it in first while physically holding the handle down and the light still came on. I am completely stumped. Has anyone had this problem? Any help is great and btw I have over 4 mm of pad left

Your brake pads may be worn down to where there isn't enough fluid in your master cylinder. Check the level there.

The first thing to check when the brake warning light on your dash turns on is the fluid level in the reservoir, you are creating much more work for yourself than is necessary.
