If your flash will fire a test flash, and takes photos normally, there is nothing wrong.
Check your user manual: The flash-ready lamp will first turn green (ready for quick flash), then red (fully recycled or flash
With strong batteries and low power flash, you won’t see green.

Thank you! I’m obviously very new to speedlights. I knew the first time I used it that it was green. I got nervous when it was red all the time. I was just confused. Thanks for clearing that up for me.
Don't blame yourself. Every newbie is confused by the counterintuitive assignment of those lights. Of course one naturally assumes that the "all systems are ready" light would be green, not red. But it is what it is, and we all get used to it eventually.
