You have various display options - press up on the control wheel to go through them. One puts all information on the right hand side of the preview image so nothing interferes with composition.

The hand will only appear if the camera believes you are likely to get a blurred image due to the settings you're using and the available light - eg if you increase the ISO and/or increase aperture size the hand will disappear eventually!

You can change the display arrangement on the back LCD, but not the viewfinder.  And the hand stays if you are using a slow shutter speed, regardless of the other settings -- you can't change aperture or ISO to make it go away, unless that results in a change of the shutter speed.  It is annoying when you are shooting on a tripod, for instance -- the 'warning' is unnecessary then!
