Can you tell me what this indicator is?

I turn on the car and a little wrench and a clock symbol show up, along with a number that is getting larger. I assume this means it is past due for some sort of service interval? I just got this car a few weeks ago and it now has 72k on the clock, does 70k mileage trip a sensor of any sort? Thanks in advance.

It's part of a FSS system indicating a service is due. A single wrench is a minor "A" service, a double wrench indicates a moderate "B" service. Other service requirements are subject to mileage and years in service.

Thanks for the help all, I figured it was some sort of service issue. It was pretty easy to reset once I figured out what the actual name of the indicator was (so I could search).
