Default Weird engine light on then off?

I left my car idling for about 5 minutes to run inside when I came out I put the car in reverse and it was sputtering with no kinda power. The oil pressure gage and the volt meter gage were jumping around. I put it in drive and it was doing the same thing. After like 30 seconds of greatly reduced power and sputtering it stopped. While it was doing this the check engine light was blinking. After this sputtering stopped it ran normal with the engine light on not blinking. Parked the car looked under the hood. Looking for something saw nothing and started the car back up. The check light was now off and was running normal. Is this code still there if I take it to Autozone. Anybody have a clue??

History code will still be there. I wouldn't worry unless the light came back.
