If its blinking yellow, it thinks there is something not quite right. It displays the problems in a list for you to fix or ignore.
The easiest way to see if the Time Capsule is failing in backup is to look at the little icon at the top of the screen. Ask the Time Capsule to back up now. If it fails the circular arrow will maybe revolve about 3 times and then will have an exclamation mark in the middle of it. Otherwise it will keep revolving until the backup is complete.

If everything appears to be normal and you have a blinking yellow light, it is probably an alert for a firmware update your Time Capsule.
To verify, Open Hard Drive > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility
Click on Manual Setup at the lower left of the pane when AirPort Utility opens.
The next page is a Summary of your settings. Click on "Status" and another window will open with a message explaining the reason for the blinking yellow light.MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.7), Time Capsule, AirPort Express, iPhone
