It looks like your startup folder was changed somehow. Go to System Preferences --> Startup Disc --> Select your OS Folder
The earth thingy means its trying to find the boot volume on a network and the folder with ? mark its searching the HD for the boot volume. It is harmless to have it go through that but it will slow you down
