Check Transmission indicator. It means that PCM has detected a problem in the transmission, It should have a trouble code stored in memory now that can be retrieved with a scan tool.

What does it mean when yellow circle with an exclamation mark inside the circle to the left side of the letter D when I put my car in drive

Should consult manual but usually this symbol means either tire pressure or could be brake pad wear if it has a circle with another circle around it such as -- (O)
Sometimes this could also mean your ebrake is engaged. Even if it is not engaged the sensor could be bad.

I have ECL lit upon my dashboard and and now I have an exclaimation mark in a triangle with a circle around it, what do they mean?

the blinking ecl might mean a misfiring plug or bad coil (look for engine shake) ... the triangle with a circle means "worry about this" ... you can take your car to many auto parts stores .. they will check your computer (usually free) .. that should narrow down what is causing the fault ... it could be anything that is monitored by the computer ..the oxygen sensor is a common failure also cracked or leaking vacuum hoses have caused all kinds of troubles .. .. even an air leak in the gas cap seal will flag a trouble code .. so the first thing to do is get that diagnostic test done and hope its a cheap part that you can replace yourself ....

I have a warning light - a circle with a exclaimation mark in the center, what does this mean

this one normally indicates a brake warning lamp.......the first thing i would check is that the brake fluid level is ok in the master cylinder. as your brake pads wear out, they will draw fluid from the master cylinder, this is normal, and as lond as you dont have any abnormal noises then just top up the fluid with NEW brake fluid

Dashboard light

if that "Circle" is a sort of round-bent arrow shape around "!" mark, you either have ASC or DSC disabled manually (by pressing the "DSC" button on your console", or there is a problem with the system.
Take your to the dealer. Specialized MINI/BMW computer should be able to diagnose it right away. Can be a costly repair
