Traction control and EML Light??

I was sitting at a light waiting for it to turn green. As I slowly accelerated, my traction control light and EML light turned on and I could not accelerate past 2000 rpm. It did that for about 5 - 7 seconds then my car kicked in and it drove fine. It has done this now twice in 1 week. Anybody know the problem? Any help would be awesome. Thanks
