You are using a ConstraintLayout to contain your items, and the message actually indicates that when execute your application your button or views would actually show in the coordinate 0,0 (upper left corner), to avoid this you must define restrictions to your elements:

Click on the end circles and drag them from the view to the ends of the container (up, down, left and right) with this when executing your application the position would be displayed correctly according to the defined restrictions.

I recommend you review this answer:

Is it possible add a LinearLayout in a ConstraintLayout or any other Layout?
