I have noticed that some APPS, like Facebook for BB, have a small icon that displays at the top of the screen when a Facebook events occured in my inbox, notifying me that I should open facebook to see what the event is.
How do I get my app to create and display one of these types of icons.

This is done by using the ApplicationIndicator APIs that were introduced in OS 4.6 and are there straight through to 5.0.
You should also check out the MessageListDemo that comes packaged with the Eclipse Plugin and JDE for an example of how to place custom messages into the inbox as well as set the indicator.

Are you trying to run the sample or your own code? Are you running it in a simulator with OS version 4.6 or later?
