I am seeing a red dot in one of the review queues:

Red dot example

When I click on the queue it shows no pending reviews.

Why is that, and what is the meaning of that?

It's already reported on Meta SE: Red indicator for an empty queue


The red-dot means that there are high number of items waiting for review. See How does the review-needed indicator work exactly? for further details.

    high number of items waiting for review, but there is nothing, even when I clicked on all queues, every queue was cleared.

  • Maybe you already reviewed all the items to which you have access.
