Have the codes read by someone proficient with an OBDII scanner. Auto Zone is ok but sometimes their scanner doesn't give you the whole picture. It sounds like it may be a misfire but it's best to have it scanned

Is it ok to drive P

That's hard to say without actually knowing the issue. Get to a shop as soon as you can

Po300 is that bad

I think a P0300 is multiple random misfire. I definitely wouldn't drive it too much without a concrete diagnosis. It can be any number of things from coil pack(s), to spark plugs & wires, to fuel injectors, possible fuel filter or even the vehicles computer. Have it checked out asap
