It means either your O2 sensor has failed and is not correctley measuring the appropriate air/fuel ratio, or that your Catalytic Converter (cats) have failed and will need replacing. If your a novice then this will be something that you should have a shop do properly. This will require the vehicle to be on a hoist to have the exhaust removed (if it is the cats).
Please note, the reason that new cats are so bloody expensive is because they contain several precious metals including Platinum. Platinum is 3 times more expensive then gold by weight so keep this in mind when they drop the price of them on you.
