    Welcome to Android Central! Can you take a screenshot and post it so that we can actually see the icon? To take a screenshot, press the power button and the volume down button at the same time.

    I'm pretty sure that's a lightbulb from your wallpaper bleeding through your semi-transparent status bar, and not an icon.

    Is it always there, or only when the status bar is shown? If it's always there, it might be a screen defect.

    It really looks like one of those other light bulbs. I suspect that somehow that current image has somehow gotten "stuck" in the status bar. If I knew what system app was responsible for the lock screen and/or the status bar, I'd suggest you go to Settings/Apps/All and clear its cache, but I'm not really sure which one it would be.

    One thing to try would be a cache partition wipe, which erases temporary data that the system uses. The process is a little different for each device. What device are you using?

    Did you actually clear the system cache partition, or just the app cache? To clear the system cache partition, you have to reboot into the Recovery Menu. Did you do that?

    Also, have you tried reverting back to the stock launcher, or temporarily uninstalling Nova?

    Instructions here: How to Enter Recovery Mode on the Samsung Galaxy S4 - TheUnlockr

    When you're at the Recovery Menu, select "Wipe Cache Partition." Don't worry, you won't lose any important data. When the cache wipe is done, highlight "Reboot System Now" and press the power button to execute.
