Default Faulty Low Coolant warning light?

For the past 3-4 days, my dashboard's "Low Coolant" icon has been coming on for several seconds. The coolant level is about 1/4" over the full line when cold and about 1/2" above when hot. I noted that the Temp gauge pointed a little less than straight up when it came on. In other words, 'normal'.

I bought it Sept 2016 with 67K miles and it now has 92K and I have not flushed it or added coolant during my ownership period. I've read that 30K miles is a good interval for a flush. I am wondering two things: (1) What might be the cause for the light coming on when there coolant appears to be OK? (2) Any chance that a flush would stop the light from coming on?

Me again. So after posting this question I scrolled down to see 5-6 previous posts from members who had the same problem. Seems that a good cleaning of the reservoir tank might fix it. Maybe I'll give this a try.
