Notifications are alerts from apps, system, and other senders.
Windows 11 puts notifications in the Notification Center (Win+N) on the taskbar corner where you can view them instantly from the flyout.
You can select a notification in the Notification Center to read more or take action. Don't want to take any action? To clear a specific notification, click/tap the X next to the notification you want to clear. If you want to clear all your notifications, click/tap on the Clear all button.
