It might just be a dust cap but that symbol does imply it's not to be used.  I assume the port is physically there and looks 'normal'. If so, give it a try, what's the worst that could happen.....

I agree, it was probably telling you not to remove it until you are ready to use it.

Find the manual or the specifications for your computer.  That should state whether you have a HDMI port or not.  If it is a good manual it will describe the ports on the back of your computer and there should be information as to whether the HDMI port is usable or not.
