There are red and pink edges on my mesh.

What do these colored edges mean? How can I use them?

Those edges have been marked.
There are actually five types of markings you can apply to edges:

  1. Red - UV Seam
  2. Blue - Bevel Weight
  3. Purple - Edge Crease
  4. Cyan - Sharp Edge
  5. Green - Freestyle Edge

You can mark edges yourself from Edit Mode using the Edge menu (Ctrl+E).

    $\begingroup$ What happens if an edge has multiple markings? One takes precedence for display? $\endgroup$
