this means that your pendrive is locked and to use it normally you have to unlocked it so follow the below :

first : remove your pendrive from usb port and then find the small pin (or button) then if the pin's position at the bottom move it to the top.

second : after you unlocked it insert it into usb port again and it will work again .
