If you type in cycleCheck -e off into the MEL line at the bottom of your screen (if it says Python just click Python to toggle to MEL) it will no longer give you this warning.
What it means is this: Particles feed information to itself cyclically based on time, (e.g. their previous position at the frame before plus new information gives new position) so if you move backwards in the timeline, or if you jump to the first frame 1, you're screwing up this cyclical flow of information (nothing to worry about) and it's just warning you that it might not give you expected behaviour. That's my understanding based on what I think I remember learning. Hope that makes some sense.
