Any thing wrong when this symblo appeared

My 320mt was driven for about 2 years,It's the second car in my home, as I like ride moto for daily work, It has been used very few time. and now the yellow symblo appears a lot with a "bing!!"sound in a month. scared me.Is there anything wrong with the engine ?
The symblo appeared always at low speed when traffic jam, and disappeared few second after,then everything looks fine. I can't find any thing wrong in the dash menu.everything "check ok".when it flashed,my car drivers fine,I can feel nothing different.
So do I need to have the car repaired or just leave it, until any obvious feeling happening?Any advised?
as I am not good at english in telling what this symblo is,I can't search forun for help. so please forgive such easy question.

ive gotten this mode when i really get on my car but if i shut it off for like 4 seconds or so itll go away.... sometimes i just shut off my car while cruising down the high-way and turn it back on and it goes away lol i think my car is throwing some bad codes or maybe my pump is going to go but not sure need to take it in and see whats going on.

+1. Limp mode = engine protection mode. Just cycle your ignition and it should turn off.

I am back from the dealer today,After one day's drive,another yellow eningee light apppeared,which means the enginee malfunction refer to the manual,so I have to go to the dealer,They checked the car and told me the problem is caused by the Camshaft Position Sensor, It's ok now after the sensor changed.They said the fault of the sensor is caused by the quality of the gas i filled. too much carbon deposit sticking on the sensor, the data fed from the sensor is wrong,so computer think it is bad.
On my way to the dealer, there are a freeway about 10 km to go, after I got there ,the yello error icon has gone, everything is right, maby the sensor is freshed by highway driving. But they were kind enough to chang for me cause I am going to be out of waranty .now I know another way to casue the half enginee icon lighting up.It's not the hpfp since 320 never have such problems.
