Are you using Windows on the system also? If so go to the windows control panel , locate sound and select manage audio devices. Select speakers. Do this without the headphones plugged in.

Otherwise do this:

'The headphone jack on the MacBook has a small switch for "digital output". The red light you see means the switch is stuck in the "on" position. Try inserting and removing your headphones a few times to see if you can flip the switch. You can also try using a toothpick or paperclip to poke the switch back into the "off" position. If you're not comfortable doing that, take the computer to an Apple Store and ask a Genius to fix it for you.'

Check the jack on the headset if it is bent the switch problem may reoccur. Or if you have another headset without a bent jack, try them and see if the switch resets.
