The following information comes directly from the info pages.  
(c-h i m e m <RET> m s e a r <RET> m i n c r <RET>)

   When you pause for a little while during incremental search, it
highlights all other possible matches for the search string.  This
makes it easier to anticipate where you can get to by typing `C-s' or
`C-r' to repeat the search.  The short delay before highlighting other
matches helps indicate which match is the current one.  If you don't
like this feature, you can turn it off by setting
`isearch-lazy-highlight' to `nil'.

   You can control how this highlighting looks by customizing the faces
`isearch' (used for the current match) and
`isearch-lazy-highlight-face' (for all the other matches).

(I suggest that you consider making info (help) your friend.  Once you
have done that you will only have to resort to this list when you can't
find answers to your questions in it.  If you want to write functions I
would also recommend the other fine reference "the emacs lisp
