The red number is the note that you should use as your guide when playing the lick in other keys. In this case the note is a C. If you wanted to play this lick in D, you would just move everything up 2 frets so that the number in red would be at the 10th fret on the first string (D).

This lick is completely out of a C minor pentatonic scale.
