I am routing my first ever PCB and half way through the routing process I've noticed my tracks now have this transparent border around it. Any idea what this is ? I must have clicked something? Not sure how to disable it nor what it actually represents.

That's the clearance around tracks according to your current design rules. I.e. the space the trace you are currently routing can not enter. The shortcut is Ctrl+W (in Altium 21) and the preferences panel entry is called "Display Clearance Boundaries".
