need help with 5 ton

first of all im not sure if i posted this in the right place since im new to this site. if its wrong sorry. i have a 1998 gmc 5 ton. recently while i was driving my primary brake light and also the low antifreeze light came on and it makes a sound, like a pump running or something. it would come on for a few seconds than turn off then do it again about thirty seconds later and keep doing the same thing. normally these lights come on when i first start the truck but turn off a couple seconds later and thats the end of it. all my fluid levels are good. any help or advice would be great thank you.
