Although, looking at the files, boot/i386/pc/boot.S outputs "GRUB " and boot/i386/pc/diskboot.S outputs "Loading kernel", so the parts actually mean different things: maybe it's important that it prints "GRUB " first in case it never prints anything else? perhaps there are other possible code-paths? In any case, then maybe it should say
"GRUB Loading GRUB kernel", or, "GRUB Loading itself" :-)

Considering that diskboot.img is limited to 512 bytes, I'd rather go
with "loading" without "kernel".  The result would be "GRUB loading",
which would look better than your proposals.  The saved bytes could be
used for some good purpose eventually.

I like that wording: concise and clear (although maybe so concise that it gets hard for a user having a problem, to Google for it).

By the way, currently the "Loading" seems to have the first letter capitalized (I don't care either way)
