New rider - 09 Ninja 250 engine problems. Help!

Ever since I got the bike last September, it's been in and out of the shops with problems.

During the winter, I stored it. Every 3 days I'd start it and drive it around for about 5-10 mins.

Yesterday I took it out for a spin. Today I was going to drive it around but here's what happened, with the key in ignition:
Engine Oil Pressure light is on
Light in the fuel gauge is on (but the tank is at least 1/2 full)
Killswitch is not engaged.
Oil levels are ok through the sight glass
Neutral light won't come on.

I tried starting the bike with the automatic start, and with the choke, clutch everything. I don't know anything about engine repair (my dad never taught me before he passed away) so I only know how to ride. Help!
