Load your picture, create an empty layer on top of it and draw your
red circle there. You can then adjust opacity of the upper layer in
the Layers dialog.

If you need to do this for a lot of images, I suggest that you use a
vectors program to create the "forbidden sign" and save it as SVG.
Then you can load this image as a layer into your images (using
File->Open as Layer).
