1999 Ford Ranger Check Engine Light

Newbie here! The other day I started up my truck and the check engine light came on and stayed on. I checked my manuel and it said first to check to make sure that the gas cap was on correctly. Well low and behold it wasn't, So I put it on correctly and didn't worry. It also said that it should take about 4 driving cyles in order for the light to go out. What exactly is a Driving cycle? I noticed this on Wednesday and it is now Sunday and the light is still on, should I wait a few more days or should I get it checked out. I drive the truck about 30 miles a day 15 miles one way. Thank-you!
