The hour glasses show that the thumbnail cache is being updated. It's a background process which can take some time, since it's reading the original file and producing a reduced version. That's much longer for raw files.
So, the answer is generally to wait...
or you can highlight the hour glass and right click to choose 'update thumbnail'. That will prioritize the generation of your selected thumbnails.
