You can install the icon for Dropbox manually. Check here

Make sure you have git installed via

sudo apt install git

then execute

git clone https://github.com/zant95/elementary-dropbox /tmp/elementary-dropbox
bash /tmp/elementary-dropbox/install.sh

The icon itself means that there's a program running and the icon specified in its .desktop file cant be found in any of the icon locations.

Its a common thing with Dropbox for example (if its indeed dropbox let me know if you need a fix) Other programs might have this behavior as well.

try clicking it and see which program's menu opens
