Green color indicates a DRC violation on the PCB and it could be due to various reasons.

You can do below 2 ways to hide it while placement and routing.
  • Tools -> Reset Error Markers.
    • This will clear all the green markers
  • Settings -> PCB Editor -> Disable the "Online DRC".
    • This will hide all the violation all together in the online mode while you are placing and routing the components.

Thank you.

Problems are probably rooms which are automatically generated when you are importing components. Just delete the rooms (the red areas) and check the rules if you do not need to delete them too.

Also, before you import any components into your PCB, do this, it will help:
