The low oil pressure warning light is effectively a light to let you know you've just wrecked your engine. Some people will have got away with it coming on a couple of times but realistically what you describe sounds like you haven't been as lucky. Oil is cheap though so there's nothing to lose by topping up and seeing what happens. hopefully you'll post back in a few hundred miles to say all is well.

In the event that all isn't well, you'll soon know as you'll start getting nasty noises from your engine or it'll seize. In your position I would be keeping my eye out for a 2nd hand engine and doing a little bit of research into garages local to you.
