John,

If it is your "Spotlight" then click on the "Spy Glass" in the upper right corner and you should see a message that "Spotlight" is indexing your system. If you have more than one drive then the message will say which drive is being indexed.

Cheers

  It'll pause and be quiet for 10 sec or so and then start up again.
