As @jarda eplained, they are just attempts to log in on to your router. I shouldn't be very concerned as long as you change the default user and the password. But if you want, you can add this to your firewall:

I eliminate a lot of these by simply turning off the access methods im not going to use.

In IP - > services. If you dont use ssh and are winbox only like me you can turn off everything except winbox. easy-peazy.
