No, the icon is red because there is a difference between the local
file and the version as it was checked out from the repository. Icon
status is a *local* status.

No, this is OK, because the local file is identical to the checked out
version. There is no visual indication that the working copy needs to
do an update (you can do 'check for modifications' and select 'check
repository' to see if there are pending updates (or do an 'update'
straight away and update your working copy.
