I would usually noticed that this light is red, but today it's white.

Tried running a game, nothing seems to be wrong.

What does a red light or white light mean?

GPU - GeForce RTX 2060
CPU - i7k
 
Thanks for this response, and I have checked the manual as of replying.

I have noticed that the LED lights you indicated was from the EZ Debug LED. The white light isn't coming from the EZ Debug LED, it's the one beside the PCI_E1, that's why I have referred to it as my GPU. The manual, however, indicated what this white light near the PCI_E1 means but i have no idea how to understand it.

The model of the mobo is MSI H310 Gaming Arctic.

That LED is not a troubleshooting LED and does not indicate a fault.

PCIe lanes are the physical link between the PCIe-supported device and the processor/chipset and consist of the lanes of communication that your motherboard uses to control your PC's functions. Your CPU, in particular, controls your CPU and memory, as well as those functions that have to do with your primary PCIe slots.

PCI Express x16 indicates that there are 16 communication channels in the interface between the motherboard and video card and lights up red.

'PCIe x8' connections have eight data lanes. and lights up white.
 
Many Motherboards have 4 LED's for troubleshooting.

DRAM_LED is usually Yellow/Orange
VGA_LED is usually green for your GPU
CPU_LED is usually Red for CPU
BOOT_LED is White for your DISK or Boot device.

The colours may vary so consult your Motherboard manual. Should any one of them come on and stay on then there is an issue corresponding to the LED that stays lit.
These troubleshooting indicators tell you where the problem is but not necessarily what it is.
Also: Post (power on self test) will not advance till the problem is fixed.
