A spanner might appear on the dash when the car is due a service. However I wouldnt use that indicator as gospel as the previous owner may have reset this service warning at the wrong time and therefore it may not give a true indication.
I would check when it was last serviced, and then work out the mileage / age it next needs a service based on that from the manufacturers service guidlines, which will be in your cars handbook.
