Status bar icons and time disappear in Messages app


First post here and I haven't been able to find any solutions searching so far.

I've noticed since the most recent update on my S6 that when I open the Messages app all of the white status bar icons and the time disappear. It doesn't matter what Messages background I am using and the weirder thing is that I have one icon that has blue color and that does not disappear, only the icons that are all white.

I know very little about the available settings on this phone but I'm hoping there is a way to fix this so I can at least see the time when I have the Messages app open.

Thanks for any help.
