It means your brake pads are worn. You will also need to replace the brake pad wear sensors too since they are now gone as well.

Like what Torque said, it's probably your brake pads wearing out or the wear sensors themselves are shot as well.

I also highly recommend replacing your brake lines with a braided stainless steel line as well. They do not flex as much internally under braking pressure and also last a lot longer than the OEM rubber lines. They also cost about the same as well which makes it a cost effective upgrade.

You will also notice your brake pedal feel is much firmer
