Hi!  I believe that is the check engine light.  It means that there is some part of the engine that needs attention.  It can range from routine maintenance (a dirty filter for instance) to a serious problem.  You will have to take it to a dealer for them to diagnose the specific error using their diagnostic computer.
I'm not sure about the Polo but for several VW models the Check Engine Light goes on when the gas cap isn't on tight (there is a sensor that monitors tank pressure).  You may want to check that first.

Hope this helps.

What is the warning light on 2005 vw gti


Hello! A thermometer light with two wavy lines underneath the thermometer indicates a problem with the VW's cooling system...When the engine is cold; Check the coolant level in the radiator...If it is full and since the light goes out when the engine reaches normal operating temperature the Low Coolant Level sensor is defective...But I suspect the level is low..

My 2001 polo gti has the abs light and the brake


lift up the rear seats (the bottoms, they lift up and slide forward) there should be 2 black connections there, check they are connected. Check your brake fluid level, if both are ok, (the following is just a guess) disconnect battery for about 30-45mins. this should reset the error (if there is one). failing that, VAG-COM it or take it and get it checked properly
