That's for the turn signal. No direction, just lets you know it's on.

That is your "lubication warning light". When your oil filter is getting clogged up the increased oil pressure in the filter will trip a swiitch located on the filter head unit and the light will come on, assuming the pressure swich and indicator bulb are working.
