    It's just a float in your master cylinder. Shouldn't be too hard to figure out whats wrong, or to expensive to replace.

    Check the level of fluid in the master cylinder. If it's low fill it. As your disc brakes wear the caliper pistons move out and more of the fluid stays in the caliper. It doesn't necessarily mean you have a leak but you should check the brakes. They may be close to needing replacement or they could be leaking.
