Hi all, I am new here and I’m still learning…trying to solve an issue. Does anyone know how to solve this?
I’m getting a message which says: “A few more steps are requires to complete your setup.”

A good article about This record exposed the IP behind can be read from below link.
When you have a grey-clouded A, AAAA, CNAME, or MX record pointing to the same origin server hosting your site, Cloudflare displays one of the following warnings:
An A, AAA, CNAME, or MX record is pointed to your origin server exposing your origin IP This record is exposing your origin server’s IP address, potentially exposing it to denial of service.
Usually, no need to worry too much. When using an e-mail service, the A mail record needs to be cloud to make it work propperly as Cloudflare does not proxy traffic for e-mail. It is well described on the below article:
