It means that the oil pressure is low enough to cause severe damage to the engine, the oil level could be low, I check my oil level every other day or if I'm on a road trip every day, other things could be a failing oil pump, oil pressure bypass valve sticking open too far, this is usually caused by an engine that has not been maintained properly, it could also mean that the engine bearing clearances are just too much too maintane oil pressure. So check the oil level and add oil if it is low and then carefully take it too a shop you trust to have it checked over, better to fix it now that too wait until it blows the engine.
