What do those small icons in the upper left corner of the screen mean?
The ones to the right of the large icon showing health, etc.
There are 3 of them, and I'm not sure if I'm damaged, spell bound,
etc. My stats seem to be normal, no red highlighting.
Thanks.

Whoops! They are next to the Map on top left of screen. Since I got
the blight disease, an icon appeared for it that was red. These are
white, and I think they may have to do with magic items that one is
wearing such as rings, etc.

On the PC, these appear at the bottom right of the screen, next to the
minimap, so I'm not absolutely certain they're the same icons. They
indicate spell effects that you are under, either good or bad. The
colour indicates the school of magic the effect belongs to;
Red for Destruction(usually disease or damage),
Blue for Restoration(healing or fortification),
Purple for Alteration(water walk, levitate),
Yellow for Conjuration(bound items, creatures),
Green for Illusion(light, invisibility)
and White for Mysticism(detection, reflect, telekinesis).

On the PC, the map is in the lower right as well, so my guess is it's the
same thing.

They are normally the effects caused by your race or sign that offer spell
effects ( 1.5x magicka or 50% weakness to fire and so on)
