Probably means your alternator. Before alternators they had GENerators. I do not know what your model is since you live in Lithuania but it may still be called a Generator.

If it stays on with the engine running, probably yes. You can confirm this by measuring the voltage on the battery with the engine running. If it's less than ca. 12.5V, the alternator is not charging.
