    That's your Mac's hard drive. If you don't want to see it on your desktop, go to:
    Finder > Preferences > General > Show these items on the desktop: > Hard disks (uncheck this)

    That is your Mac's hard disk drive icon.

    Why you don't want it? Maybe you don't want to delete it.

    Finder Menu -> Preferences
    General -> Show this items on the desktop:
    Enable what you want, and disable what you don't want to see.
