On my new D50, the focus area indicator is always displayed (in aperture priority mode) as below.

What does it mean? Is this normal? If so, could you please explain this?

That means the active sensor is the right most one on the horizontal array. Press the rear paddle control in any other direction to see if you can change the active sensor, then switch shooting modes again. Switch back to A-priority and see if the sensor selected reflects your last choice.

you have your AF-Area mode set to Single Area (custom 03)
Also you have (as everyone else said) your focus set to the right sensor, as stated before you can change the sensor when focusing using the 4 way controller on the back with the shutter half pressed.
If you want the camera to choose the AF-Area for you, set custom 03 to dynamic area or closest subject.
