Hi .......what you will need to do is find out where your feed is coming in at is either the ceiling box or one of the switch need to find out what else is on that circuit ......shut off the breaker and see what is off

and two'll be okay with another single light and you know where the feed is yet ?

Not yet but I was thinking about what you said I'm just not sure how to take the power from the 3 way to the single once I find the source

once you find the feed you will have to run 2 more wires
