Health, represented by the Red circle, is your vitality, or a measure of how alive your are. If you reach zero or less than zero health you will enter one of the death scenarios of the game, or alternatively if you are playing co-op you'll enter a downed state.
Health will be burned (Maximum decreased) every time you take damage or use certain items. You can restore burned health by resting, or using certain items.
Stamina is a measure of how tired you are, many physical actions decrease your stamina, and your walk speed is tied to your current stamina.
Stamina is burned by strenuous actions, such as attacking or sprinting. Burned Stamina can be restored by resting, or by using certain items.
Mana is the magical resource, a measure of your ability to manipulate the world. This resource is not unlocked by default.
Mana is burned by resting, but can only be burned to 50% of its maximum before the resting burn caps out. Burned Mana can be replenished by using certain items, or going an extended period without rest.
