The oil light is a separate issue. Check the oil level and maybe go ahead and change the oil and filter. If that does not do it then replace the oil pressure sender unit. If your car has high miles your engine may just be worn out. For the charging system have the battery and alternator tested but also clean and tighten the battery connections.
