When you click on that Chat icon, it should take you to one of the chat messages that is unread, and clicking on it will mark it as read and get rid of the icon. All unread chat messages from should be highlighted in bold.
To stop getting notifications for one of your chat recipients all together, find the name of the chat recipient and click More options > Mute. Only the notifications are turned off, so you still receive messages and an icon appears next to the names of the participants to remind you that the chat has been muted.
If you have too many chats that you do not want to be notified of, click on your Settings (on your Profile, then the Gear icon), click "Notifications", and under "Messages | Chat messages", you can set it to "Off". The only options are "Banner" and "Email", so I can't remember right now whether that gets rid of the red icon, but it is the only setting available that I am aware of.
You can always do a Teams UserVoice submission if it none of those meets your needs (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public).
Hope that helps,

I click on it and it doesn't go anywhere. It did once go to a recipient but the circle still didn't go away. If I don't know who was the recipient, I can't mute them.
The mobile app doesn't show any notifications. I have restarted Teams on Windows several times, the machine was rebooted. It seems to be stuck in this state. I have visited every group under Chat.
I wish there was a setting to clear this or a setting to mark everything as read. I will try uservoice to ask for this feature.
