Three colored circles in Jira Agile Planning Mode

My team is just starting to use Jira Agile. When in planning there are three circles (blue, yellow, green) in the upper right corner. When in work mode I also see a grayed out circle at the bottom on each ticket.

What are these cirles for and how do I use them? For the life of me I cant seem to figure this out. Thanks!

They're counting the current progress of issues - a Scrum board broadly falls into "backlog" (blue), "in progress" (yellow) and "done" (green). If you're using Story Points, then the circles will contain the number of story points in those status.

Since I am not using story points (yet) does that explain why all my issue circles are gray in planning and work mode?

I'm not 100% sure, but that does sound right to me. I'll dig out a recent Jira/Agile tomorrow and check, but I think you're on the right track.

Hi! Do you guys know how can I 'activate' those circles? Although I have some done cards, all the points in the current sprint appear to be yellow like 'In progress'.

Any advice? Thanks!
