I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That is usually left when a change is made in that line and document tracking is turned on (review tab, track changes).

That looks like a Heading.  what will happen if you left-click on it ?

Just select the text on the right side of that triangle and then click on Normal.

Yes, it's a heading. Right-click it, Paragraph... check the Outline Level setting. A normal document it says "Body Text".
