Depends on how much it smells and how long it's been since your last oil change. It's normal for it to smell a bit like gasoline due to normal engine blow by.

Could be a few different things like a bad axle, ball joint or wheel bearing depending on how and when it makes the sound.

As far as the brake light, is there enough brake fluid? If it's too low the light will illuminate. If the sensor that detects the fluid level has failed, that could cause the light to trip also.

Another possibility is the e-brake. If it's on or the sensor detects that it's on, the light will illuminate.
