You need to find out which problem the check engine light is activated by. Only way to do this is to have the error code read, either by a mechanic or by buying your own diagnostic device (over a $100 usually). Often it's anti-pollution equipment like the oxygen sensor or catalytic converter underperforming which turns the light on. You can drive with these conditions for a while but will need to get them fixed if emissions tests are required.
The brake fluid leak is caused either by a hole in the brake line near the rear wheel or by a leaking brake cylinder at the wheel. Get these fixed soon; the brakes will become less effective and can suddenly fail if the leak expands.

This is on my parents honda civic it means something in the engine needs to be fixed or needs new oil.HOPES THIS HELPS!!!!!
