United-Kingdom Mini Cooper 2002 - Lights on Tachometer

Hi All!

Just bought my mini cooper 2002 reg and I'm super new to the world of cars. I had to download my manual online as it didn't come with one and I can't find anything in it about my problem. Can't find anything in any forum about it but I apologise if something similar has come up and been answered!

Heres the problem:

Since first getting the car, on the tachometer there are strips of light around the numbers when you want the lights to come on but when the lights are off theres lights still on from "8" up to between "6" and "7".

Can anybody tell me if these lights are trying to tell me something? Or is it maybe a problem with the lights not turning off when they should be?

I really hope I'm not just being stupid! (please don't laugh at me)

Thanks in advance for anyone that might be able to help me
