What is the circle on the play head line in FCPX?

It indicates which clip is currently active in the video inspector. When you make changes in the inspector, they will be affecting the clip that contains that circle. If you have multiple clips stacked this is useful to ensure you affect the proper clip when making adjustments to color, transform, audio, etc. from the inspector pane.

Thanks alot! I have found it difficult to find an answer to this!

Then again, why does it not exist there all the time? Maybe only when I have inspector open?

From the user manual - page 13: “If no clips are selected in the timeline, a white dot now appears on the playhead to indicate the clip whose attributes are shown in the inspector.”
