That does look a little ominous to be honest. Basically it's telling you that something else or somone else is using your camera. There is malware about that can do that apparently. It's probably nothing but I would run an anti-malware program such as Malwarebytes. After that I would uninstall the camera drivers and re-install them. I would also go through all the Windows apps and stop those that want to use your camera from doing so. I take it you are using Windows 10?
