Should I be worried about this graffiti in front of my house?

Some cryptic writing has appeared in spray-paint on our sidewalk, with arrows pointing to our house. Is this just normal graffiti, or could it be more threatening?

First, here's a picture.
The pink tag appeared first, and the yellow tag appeared a few days later.
Is this just standard graffiti to the effect of "Bob was here"?
Could it be a thief sending a signal to others, like "This looks like a good house to rob"? We live in a neighborhood with moderate crime, and burglaries aren't uncommon here. Our car windows have been smashed before, and houses on our street have been broken into in the past. Neighbors have also reported suspicious characters who appear to be casing houses.
Or might it be a benign symbol from the road/utility departments? I know I've seen similar markings on streets before, but not on a residential sidewalk.
Maybe I'm just being paranoid. Any ideas?
