Do you mean the white box thing? That's weird, it may be a bug. You should try reporting it on the repl.it bugs page.

No, that's not a bug. Things highlighted in white is the selection, so when you go to select some text into the console, you know what you just selected.

The white box in this case looks like a text box, and I tried highlighting and the highlighted text doesn't look like that.

You typed gibberish into the console, so Python thinks it is code and tries to execute it, which results in an error.

The console is a place where you can run code.
You can use functions like print("my message") in the console.

Hope I could help you with understanding this!

You're typing gibberish into the console window, and Python's trying to run said gibberish as code (which is why it's giving you an error.)
What happens if you try clicking in the console window, then typing? Does it work?

Constants are a special type of variable. Once declared, the value cannot be changed (unless how to get fiberglass out of skin you change the value when initializing it). In JS you use the const keyword: const pi = 3.14159
