It'll reset itself in a few start ups.

Just remember that the CEL (check engine light) isn't an emergency thing and you won't hurt the car by driving it a while until you can have it checked out.

If you just can't wait to have it checked but don't want the dealer to get annoyed with you most Auto-Zone auto parts stores will check DTC/CEL codes for you with their OBDII/CAN reader just for the asking.

And make sure that gas cap clicks at least once and 2-3 times just to be sure when you fill up.
