If you mean the light in the dash you'd need to take the dashboard display out and replace the bulb. Most cars have the same little bulb which should be available at any car shop. If aster that the light is still out, I'd take it to a garage to diagnose the airbag.

Thank you. after the light went out, it started to make this constant beeping noise. What should i do to fix the problem ?

The beeping noise is new to me, but then again all cars have various ways of fault information. The noise might have something to do with the light or air bag, but the only way to find out would be to replace to light or check on a OBD fault code reader.
