PyCharm 4.5.3 Help

File Status Highlights

In PyCharm each file has its own status marked with a specific color. The file status denotes correspondence of the actual file content with the one marked as 'current'.

In the editor, each line in a file is checked whether it corresponds to the state at the 'current' point and marked with a specific color at the left gutter area.

You can customize the default colors:
