Hi Amber

This is the Low Coolant Level indicator. You may need service soon. Hopefully, you are just low, however, it could indicate other problems (minor or major).

NEVER remove the radiator cap while the coolant is HOT!

Here is info straight from your owners manual:
Low Coolant Warning Light
This light comes on
briefly when you turn
your ignition on.
If this light comes on and stays on and you hear a chime,
the vehicle should promptly be pulled off the road and
the coolant level checked.

I would think it's a low fuel level light.
Are you low on fuel?
