Getting Interesting response error saying as "The server responded with a non 200 (OK) nor 404 (Not Found) status code.
This is a non-issue, however exotic HTTP response status codes can provide useful
insights into the behavior of the web application and assist with the penetration test."
Is this is an error or its just for the information

    These types of issues have a severity of "Informational" and that is reflected in all areas where they might be presented (UIs, reports, etc.), was it misclassified as "High" somewhere?

    As you can see, the issue clearly has a severity of "Informational", other than that I can't help you; the person writing that application must sort and categorise the issues accordingly.
    Is that application something you're working on?
