To answer your first question: Not necessarily. Those log files may have been generated while you are testing every time your run Snort.Your second question: The warnings mean that some rules' flowbits are not "resolved". You can use PulledPork to resolve the flowbits. I am not familiar with manual method unless you disbale the rules with these flowbits.Third question:   Ensure you are actually getting packets on the interface Snort listens to. May be take a capture and run it through Snort and see what happens.
P.S.: Please keep the communication on the list. It is a mutual benefit.

So basically you mean that it's  a snort logs problem which means that snort set up incorrecly?

Well that's what I have so far with snort:

when I try to do:
$ snort -v
Running in packet dump mode

        --== Initializing Snort ==--
Initializing Output Plugins!
ERROR: Failed to lookup interface: no suitable device found. Please specify one with -i switch
Fatal Error, Quitting..

and if I try to do this:
$ sudo /usr/local/bin/snort -d -e -i en0 -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
Password:

Thank you for your reply! 
I'm using OS X 10.10.2
Snort was installed from Homebrew (so I believe that means from package)
I've downloaded it from that link (https://www.snort.org/configurations) and now I'm getting this:

The permissions on "/var/log/barnyard2" are 755 (drwxr-xr-x   2 root   wheel   68B   barnyard2/).
So I've done this with sudo:

So there are no waldo file for some reason((( Any ideas?

# The above consecutive messages indicate that Barnyard2 is working on reading existing logs generated by Snort. As you can see, logs seem to be empty. As for the waldo file, Barnyard2 will create it for you, the message at the top is just a warning.
