Help! System LVM volume seems RO

Hi guys!

Not very sure what happened, but seems my root LVM volume where proxmox sits is probably on RO. It keeps complaining of 0 bytes of space left, so it won't let me open a VNC console, and most tasks seem to fail. How should I proceed to fix these errors?

EDIT: So, maybe it really is full. pve-root shows 15G out of 15G used. How can I go about removing stuff from there?
EDIT2: And so it proves panic wasn't a good friend. I moved an image file to the wrong mapping. It had filled the system partition to the brim, and I was facing issues. I think it's solved now, I removed the annoying image file from the system partition, clearing a few gigs, and seems to work now.
