You've your phone on Total Silence (one of Do not Disturb modes).

In the section Turn sounds back on (turn off "Do not disturb") of the article Silence your device with "Do not disturb", Elena notes:

If your phone is in "Do not disturb" mode, you'll see an icon in the status bar at the top of your screen:
