On my instrument cluster/dashboard, there is a yellow brake light that is on while I am driving. What does this mean?

Your. Car is telling you to do a search for what the yellow break light means before posting the question. Unless your time is somehow more valuble than ours and you want us to do the leg work for you. Maybe its just. Telling you that you indeed have breaks?
Sorry for any odd punctuation or random double letters, My phones keyboard is going Kaput.
