The white line indicates the distance to the subject in the focus area (in meters or feet according to the option selected for A[SCREEN SET-UP] > [FOCUS SCALE UNITS] in the setup menu), the blue bar the depth of field, or in other words the distance in front of and behind the subject that appears to be in focus.
