That is the limp home mode indicator

Electronic throttle control (if equipped): Illuminates when the engine has defaulted to a ’limp-home’ operation. Report the fault to a dealer at the earliest opportunity.

This can happen from a few things, one i if you are hitting the no load rev limiter a lot. I have seen this happen from people playing in a parking lot in the snow doing doughnuts. This is one example where service is not required, but there are a few where service is required.

Were you pulling something ( like a log or bush ) and spinning the tires a lot ?

It means your truck needs to be serviced, oil change or a schedueled maintenance service according to mileage. Check your owners manual for more info or take your truck to a local shop for more details.

A wrench is showing

The definition of the warning light should be in your owners manual.
Normally a yellow wrench warning light is a problem with the engine controls, and a red wrench involves the drivetrain.
The warning light tells you there is a problem and the computer needs to be scanned to get the trouble codes to proceed.

Sometimes no acceleration with pedal after startup on 2004 f-150 3.4l

these are "fly by wire" meaning there is no throttle cable, its all electronically controlled. best thing would to be take it to a shop and let them use a scanner on it so you can see exactly where your fault lies.

My rear end chatters around corners and if im pulling a trailer my abs light and the wrench shaped light will come on in my 2004 f150 fx4 supercrew

If you have a locking rear diff,it could be the clutches on the side gears or lack of fluid and special additive. Sounds like the wheel speed is off enough on corner,to set the ABS light,when it chatters. Don't over look parking brake and rear caliper issues.
