Intermittent brake light warning light Help

For about 5 months now. My "check brake linings" and red brake light come on. sometimes for 5 seconds like today, sometimes for 2 or 3 days and everything in between. then it goes back out for a week or 2 weeks. The last time it was off for over a month.

Does this sound like a bad sensor? Should I get the brakes checked? At state inspection 2 months ago, the tech said I have about 15,000 left on the fronts and 25,000 on the back. Based on mileage when I replaced them.

I do my own brake replacement. I personally don't want to pull the wheels if I don't have to. What do you all think?

Well check the brake fluid level first. If it's above min, than it's not that. Then check those sensors, maybe they got snagged by something.
