Oil On Brakes= Malfunction! (help)

So long story short, I didn't place the large O ring on the oil filter cap and got oil sprayed all over my engine bay which eventually ran down my underbody and wheels. Shortly after, my brake light wouldn't go off after I disengage my parking brakes and now the computer telling me I need new brakes. I tried driving around to burn off the oil driving in stop and go traffic but the problem still occur. I'm going to spray them with brake cleaner when I get home to see if that helps. Anyhow, have anyone experience this before? Should I just replace my whole braking system (pads, rotors, & sensors)?

More info:

I know I have about 13,000 miles of pad life and brakes are performing as normal... I just get a few noises here and there.
