It sounds like you may have a built in filter in the faucet. The red may indicate that it is time to change the filter, but more than likely it is an indicator for low batteries which are located in the cabinet below the sink. Either change the filter, or change the batteries.
If water is backing up into the tub then you have clog downstream from that bathroom group. If water backs up when you ran water in the rest of the house then you have a clogged sewer service. With either case the house drain and / or sewer drain will need to be snaked. Most of the time it will be the sewer drain.
Go to a plumbing supply house with the old strainer and see if they can match it up for you. You might have to buy a whole new basket assembly. Or if you can't find a match, have the entire basket drain assembly replaced so that you can find replacement baskets in the future
Yes you can still get those basket strainers and you can replumb with plastic pipe. Make sure when you go to the store to get the extra long strainers made for thick sinks, the fitting on the bottom should be made to accept plastic pipe. You may also need a "mission band" or "fernco coupling" to attach the plastic to metal pipe after replacing everything under the sink.
Turn the swimming pool pump off and wait for the water to drain from the strainer basket. You want to make sure that the pump is completely off before you proceed. Remove the screws or any items securing the lid of the strainer basket. Open the lid and pull out the strainer basket. Vacuum the strainer basket or scoop out any debris. You may want to run clear water through the basket to ensure you removed all debris. Feel toward the impeller and remove any clogs or obstructions preventing the impeller from working properly. Check the o-ring under the cover of the pump strainer housing. You may need to use a silicon lubricant to ensure a water-tight seal. Put the strainer basket back into the pump strainer housing and pour some water into the basket. Replace the lid and secure it in place. Turn the swimming pool pump on and check for proper pressure. If your pressure doesn't register, you may need to troubleshoot to find the problem.
