That flashing light indicates that you are getting close to the 5000 mile setting to get the oil changed. Once you hit 5000 it will stay on until it is reset. It's explained in your owner's manual.

at 4500 miles since last reset, the Maint Reqd light will come on, flash a few times, and go off at startup.
at 5000 miles since last reset, the Maint Reqd light will come on at startup and remain solid
If it's really bothering you, you can always reset it now, and then reset it again when you do your next scheduled maintenance...
