Good thing that you checked the oil and coolant....as these are the most important factors to prevent any further damage.
The warning lights are triggered on, when a fault is detected in the engine management system. This can be anything from a faulty or loose connector, to all the sensors, components.
Limp home mode is also triggered, that is why you are feeling the reduced engine performance.
However, if the engine oil and coolant are ok, you should be able to drive to garage safely, without incurring any further damage.
