Default Unfamiliar icon in taskbar

This icon started showing up all of a sudden and I cannot figure out what it is for? My Hero is rooted and I am running Fresh Rom 2.1.2. If anyone could tell me what this icon is, I would really appreciate it. Thanks

I agree, but I did not pair any headsets with my phone...bluetooth has been turned off the whole time...I have tried to get the icon to disappear by killing running processes, but nothing will get rid of it

I'm not familiar with Bluetooth on this phone at all because I don't use it, I would try turning Bluetooth on then back off. If that doesn't work try rebooting.
