Sometimes there's a yellow exclamation mark on top of it, and sometimes part of the meter is red - what do these indicate?

    if you stop starving, does it go away? – Malady Sep 29 '19 at 12:41

It seems the exclamation mark appears if you have been starving for a long amount of time. It means your stamina will drop faster than normal.

The red part of the meter represents a reduced maximum, it has the same cause but appears later and slowly grows.

Eating doesn't immediately fix this. Eating and then sleeping cures it.
