Go to your Google payments center and follow the steps in the alert.
Your account is currently under review for compliance with the AdSense Program policies.

All accounts are monitored for policy compliance and invalid activity. At times, while your account is under investigation, your payments will be temporarily placed on hold.

Is there an alert on your Payments page? You don't need to take action. This hold will be automatically removed at the end of the investigation if your account is policy compliant and your traffic is valid.
