Car wont start without pressin the gas, is it safe to drive?

Hey everyone, so about a week ago my engine light went on and i ignored it to see if it'd go away or wait till i had a free week to leave it at a shop, but exactly one week after, it wouldn't start unless id press the gas right after i turned the key.
My dad went on how this happens when water is in the fuel tank or something like that, the engine light did turn on right after i put gas too. But he put some lucus product in my car and on that day it would turn on roughly but still without me pressin the gas.

I've gone to the conclusion that its the air control valve. I have a new gas pump so it cant be that...I hope.

Point being till i can clean it on Saturday or take it to a shop, is it safe to drive, city and hwy?
