That is the glow plug indicator lamp. That is just letting you know that the glow plugs are heating up. Since the engine is diesel there are no spark plugs . The fuel is ignited by the heat of the compression . So if the engine is cold the glow plugs help heat up the cylinder . This is normal operation unless the light never shuts off then you have a issue . Hope this helps !
