I noticed a value of “Intercept” at the top of my model variables. What does that mean?

Including an intercept is standard practice in regression modeling. The intercept is a coefficient that ensures every line does not have to be fitted through the (0,0) coordinate. Essentially, it ensures an optimal model fit to the data by not restricting the nature of the variables’ relationships to the predicted outcome.
