Wales Tyre pressure on dash board

Hello new to the forum and straight in with a question, my daughter is looking at buying a 55plate cooper all seems good with the car but theres a bulging tyre symbol lit up on the dash,is it a case of low tyre pressure and a reset when inflated or could it be something iffy. Cheers ajn

Youve got a puncture normally, blow it back up and reset the system and if it reappears then the tyre must have a slow puncture?

or possible faulty sensor or wire being earthed like mine developed. Can be an awkward fix if its not the tyre.
