what do we mean when we describe a molecule as being polar?

It means two things.
1. It means that the shared pair of electrons is closer to one of the atoms (the more electronegative one) than to the other and
2. It means that the atoms have a slight charge (one has a slightly + charge and the other a slightly -(negative) charge.)
