engine management light, means there is a fault related to the engine. if there is no loss of power smoke or strange noises then you should be fine,

You will need someone to plug in appropriate diagnostics kit to tell you what it is.

I cant say you will be 100% fine as I don't know the under line fault, but like I said if no smoke or strange noises or anything untoward then a good chance you will be ok.

Yellow is just a warning. RTFM.
If you get a red one that usually means STOP NOW!
