So here is what you need to do, first check your master cylinder brake fluid level, it could be low, if it is full then you need to have your charging system tested for proper output. A lot of Asian vehicles will turn on both lights even though there is only 1 failure, so it can get your attention.

Oh and make sure your park brake is all of the way off.
