You probably have a mangled spring on the loaded chamber indicator. You will have to remove the top cover and diagnose. Here is a video which may be helpful:
Warning -- reinstalling the top cover is NOT as easy as the video makes it look. Do not attempt this unless you have a lot of patience.
On the plus side you have a nice piece of WW2 history which you got for a good price. As far as shooting the pistol is concerned, Deutschland is right. A lot of the WW2 P.38s have developed cracks especially on the slide. If you must shoot it I would recommend Winchester White Box 115 grain ammo.
