Question What does this light mean on my instrument display?

This light has come on twice a couple months apart. Tried looking it up in my owners manual but can't find it. Light issue? Car taken over by aliens?

I got the same light coming up. It's my driver side angel eye. But I imagine you'd get the same thing if a tail light was out.
