While typing a reply to an email, a lithe red ball 'jumps' in my subject line; what is that or why?

While typing, occasionally a small red 'ball' appears next to the title of my subject line and starts 'bouncing'. I've clinked on it but still don't understand why it appears?

    Could be you have some sort of a virus or malware. Try running a scan and see if that removes it.

    I've been having the same occurence lately and I think, but don't quote me on this, that it's having a problem saving a draft copy of the email, because I often get an error message related to being unable to save the email that I am working on. I'm using a Macbook, I have a virus scanner, so I really don't think it's malware or a virus. On that I am 99.9% sure it is not a virus.
