Welcome to the discussions!
Please open AirPort Utility (Hard Drive > Applications > Utilities)
Click Manual Setup
Click the word "Status"
A window will open to explain the reason for the flashing amber light. It may be a message that a firmware update is available for your device. If not, what is the message?
It says my 'Internal Disk Space is Low'. It gave me the option to ignore the warning, which I probably will do. My understanding is: it will now delete the oldest files that Time Machine has backed up. But will it delete files I've manually moved onto there?
The firm ware was up-to-date.
Time Machine won't delete files if you have them in folders. If they are just loose files on the same root level as the xxxx.sparsebundle files, Time Machine may go after them if it is really hungry.
Post back if you need a few tips about how to create/name a folder on the TC disk. You have already have done this.
