Yep powertrain fault.
You may find that you will end up getting the limp mode coming up.
It would have logged a fault code on your system which will point in the right direction.
It could be Mass Airflow Sensor, injectors, and if a diesel the glowplugs and/or glowplug relay.
Best diagnosed by a reputable garage.
If the light is steady then it's not going to go bang suddenly, but if it starts to flash then i recommend you stop as soon as possible/safe to do so and get it looked at immediately.
