It means you have a credit balance.
If you don't actually have a credit balance, and it is a new
account, it probably means you entered your starting balance as a
negative number. That needs to be a positive number if you owe.

The credit card balance is what you owe. You owe a negative amount
if you have a credit balance.
The account list works the other way; shows what you have. If you
owe money, it is negative.
