Is this jerking kind of like when some one is learning to drive a manual and they do not initially give it enough gas but then over correct and give too much gas? Is that the sort of feeling you are getting?
I am not sure what the brake warning light would have to do with this, you might want to get the code read, but it almost sounds like a clutch problem. If it were a brake problem you should have aproblem in second or any gear for that matter. But clutch problems are usually only noticable at first, in first gear. Also you saying that when you realse the clutch slowly there is no problem further makes me think it is your clutch.
How many miles are on the car (and what kind is it just for curiosity)? How many are on the clutch? How long have you had the car?
