Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

Unfortunately the network is cluttered with a lot of unconfirmed transactions at the moment (81k from the time of writing this post) and as result, even transactions with normal fees tend to receive confirmations a bit late than usual.

The only way for you to get rid of this issue for future transactions, is to use a fee higher than usual or better look at this website and use the appropriate fee: http://bitcoinfees.21.co/#fees
Posting your transaction link could also help in identifying the issue (which most likely is a lower fee than recommended).

Most likely it will get confirmed (although will take a while).

It looks like your transaction has already confirmed, but this transaction only used 56 sats/byte which is low for the current level of network congestion. At the current moment, miners want about 180 satoshis/byte which is, unfortunately, quite high. I'd recommend using the Dynamic Fees slider and moving it more to the right to speed up confirmations at the cost of higher fees.
