Notification Question

I’m a bit confused. I get two types of notifications that there are new comments in a thread I am reading. One is under “unread” which, as I understand it, is additional responses to anyone in the thread. The other is the little number next to my avatar which, I thought, was a direct response to something I said. But, often whe I click on that one. It’s just a response, not necessarily to me. Can someone please help clarify?

a green number means messages. a blue number is interactions with you, such as a reply or a “like”. if there’s a knife and fork next to the name it’s a like.
