formal charges show the amount of electrons that are in the valence of an electron in an atom. If the formal charge is 0 then the atom is neutral and has the same amount of electrons as protons. A negative number shows that it has that many more electrons than it normally has and a positive number would show that it has that much fewer electrons than it normally has.
