There might be a more experienced CL user who can step in with a more detailed answer, but on my camera, this appears to be a button to activate the meter without having to wind the camera and leave the wind lever protruding in the "on" position.  If you press that button with one of the fingers on your left hand, it is quite handy. Personally, I prefer just to use the wind lever to switch the meter on and off.

The positive (+) contact on the battery should face toward the bottom of the camera.

Best of luck with the CL.  It is quite a fun and capable camera.  In my experience, the 40 Rokkor is very sharp at middling apertures, with good contrast and high resolution.  Enjoy it.
