Looks like the check engine light. Did you recently refuel? The gas cap may not have been turned tightly enough.

Don't you keep the manual in the glove compartment?

It's the CEL.

My check engine light appeared a few days ago and then disappeared a couple days later.

Could be the result of dozens of things, from simple to not so easy/cheap.
If it comes on again, grab a code...

THE CODE IS STORED. No need to wait for it to come on again, you SHOULD read the code ASAP.

Depending on what it is, you then reset the code- and either pursue a fix or wait for it to reoccur.

For future reference, if that light flashes, it means you have a misfire and you should get it checked-out ASAP.
