i don't know why it appears but it stops me from continuation of my sketches. i mean funnel-oid sign beside the cursor.
I think it is "Filter". I can not verify it because the icon has changed and you might opperate an older version.
F5 shows/hides the filter toolbar and F6 toggels filter on/off.
Yes As Thomas says it's a filter.
When I first started with SW I had to restart when I accidentally turned it on, but it really is very useful.
I have the Filter Toolbar displayed down at the bottom and use it often
could you please tell me about the function of this toolbar?
cz you said it really is very useful.

No offence, But reading your questions so far I really think you should put a little of your time on studying before asking. These kind of questions are very simple ones and are covered in solidworks tutorial. (help - Solidworks tutorials).
Not that asking simple questions is wrong, but at least you need to know the basics and be familiar with the software first.
not only this, of course all the other issues posed in this forum can be found in .chm file or the tutorials. forum is a place to express your experiences and get the feedback from those who have same thoughts, concerns, interests or mind atmosphere. yeah surely i will find somethings about what i asked, but i'd rather to say my problem here and receive concise and practical answers and this has happened many times and i'm grateful to those who write the answers. if my questions are simple, then they would have simple answers too. there is not any classification for level of complexity of questions in this forum and if you think a specific question is not complicated enough to be answered by you, you can ignore it!
To get rid of that selection icon just click on clear filters
Thank you so much for Sharing your solution.

You're very welcome.
The reason he was saying they can be very useful is because sometimes you have a cluster of things and have a hard time selecting a specific selection. Using the filter remedies this as you can add and remove the undesired selections such as edges, faces, axis, etc...
So you could use, say a vertice filter, in order to be able to pick the desired vertice in a cluster of edges.
thanks for explanations ...
That is a filter. Sometimes I will accidentally hit E and it took me a long time to figure why I couldn't select what I wanted and what caused it. E is a default keyboard shortcut for Filter Edges and happens to be really close to other keyboard shortcuts that I use often.
