Lighting issue: Can someone help please?

I was doing a light check, just to make sure none of the bulbs are dead and the signal lights are all OK...when I noticed an oddity. The right front signal light doesn't turn on when I put on my headlights. When I put it on parking lights mode, it also doesn't turn on...but when I activate the turn signal mode, it actually turns on and blinks. So...I know it's not a blown out bulb, does anyone know what wrong with it? How can I fix it?

It's a 2011 Jeep Compass and definitely loving it so far.

Wow its nice that this question got 118 looks but no reply??
The bulb is bad. It is a dual filament bulb. One for constant on (parking) and one for blinking (turn signal). You will see these in headlights with 1 bulb with hi/low beams and taillights that are parking/braking and/or turn signals.
It needs replacing.
