The brake line wear indicator seems to appear after I go very fast or if I have a heavy load, but the brakes seem to be still fine. Should I get new brake pads.... this just started happening for 2 weeks now but the brakes seem fine. Basically my question is should i take immediate action or its cool to wait hehe

It means your brakes are getting close to replacement. I would replace them within the next several hundred miles. Remember to replace the wear sensor as well or that light might very well stay on even after new pads.
