It could be a notification. Click the Dropobx icon > Go to Notifications tab > Mark it as read.

hello --- that for the info ---  I thought that was the case, but why would the indicator just appear on only one of my  computers? --- I have that one turned off now,  will check  it the next time I start it up ---- Thanks again

I see a red indicator and my clicks on the icon don't work. Tried restarting as well. So I have no idea how to check notifications when nothing happens when I click on the icon (both clicks don't work)
