So I have this other small issue, not really sure what is causing it, but basically when I launch a terminal, and this could be konsole or alacritty, sometimes, not on every launch I get this % character showing up right above the prompt. I usually have colorscript auto-run when I launch the terminal, but this also happens when I dont run colorscript. Below is an example:

It's nothing major, but kind of annoying and I wish I could make it disappear! :)

Does anyone know what this might be?

What shell are you using?
Code:
echo $SHELL

The % sign is the defaults special character zsh uses for showing the shell.

Are you using starship or something else in combination with zsh?

I am using oh-my-zsh, zsh, syntax-highlighting, and Powerlevel10k.

On the Arch forums there are always a lot of complaints that oh-my-zsh breaks things. So I think it's either zsh reacting not reacting correctly to either oh-my-zsh, Powerlevel10k or the tiefighters. Try removing them one by one and see what happens but as you can see in my screenshot is normal to see the % sign when using the zsh shell.
