'you peeked'

When I look for the translation of a word in a question a tooltip 'you peeked' appears. I'd like to know what's behind it. Does that mean I'm going to be asked this word again later for example?

So far I haven't seen any repercussions to peeking. Personally, I try not to peek. I know that peeking when you're translating puts the words that you peeked at in with your daily practice. Or, at least, it's supposed to it says. I haven't been able to confirm whether or not it's actually functioning as it's supposed to, though.

'You peeked' tooltip appears when I wasn't doing any peeking. This happens when I begin writing the answer, usually after 'New Word' has been introduced.
