Created a global Navigation with drop down menu but not sure how to create links in my code to my SP lists. Here is a link to my code.

And for the Red background problem I would try 4 places:
First, Navigate to the Edit page in IE and use Developer Tools; click HTML tab on left of screen, then Style on the right.
Most probably you have custom CSS file which is causing this issue.
This might be the place where the problem resides:
<DIV id=ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_Caption_ctl00_nativeHtmlEditorContainer style="PADDING-RIGHT: 30px; PADDING-LEFT: 30px; PADDING-BOTTOM: 30px; PADDING-TOP: 30px; BACKGROUND-COLOR: red">
Best bet is to navigate to the Edit page in IE and use Developer Tools to help track the source for the above code.
