    its showing you where it considers there to be overexposed elements of the shot - it does the same for underexposed areas with a blue highlight.
    to remove it look to the histogram in the top righthand corner of the window. Above it there are two little triangles - a black one and a white one. Click on the white to hide the red overlay.
    Its also only an overlay so you can save as it looks there and it won't cover your shot in any way

    If your talking about the yellow triangle all the way to the right, that just means that you have security updates to download. Hold your mouse over it and it should tell you that.

    Save yourself the effort. The yellow triangle that pops up (if we're talking about the same one in the top left of the preview area) means it's still processing the file and what you see is not what you get. You may notice a quality difference when it's finished, and it usually appears longest when you first open a RAW file.
