That mini-black box is an indicator that you are fairly new to the forum, and haven't made a ton of posts yet. I believe it is automated and will turn green after you've been here for a while. I think the concept is reputation is earned, not given by default. It's a vBulletin 'feature'
I wouldn't give it a moments thought, you're fine.
