Depending on the noise you are hearing it may be from lack of maintenance or low on oil. The maintenance light may mean you have an issue with a component of you are due for service. My recommendation is to have a qualified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, come and check your car out as soon as possible to give you a diagnosis.
