That's the park mode light. 

Just set to 12 o'clock for auto. 

When engine off and u lock the car, the lights will dim off.

Mercs do not allow you to turn off the lights totally. There's only auto. If it's your first Merc, do pore through the manual, lots of cool features and functions for you to master.. cheers

It will be the same after driving around a bit after you pump (1km-2km). Cause the TPMS sensors only work when the wheels are spinning and not stationary.

I thought this is normal.

Under darker environment, the screen will dim down so as not to over blind you, while it brightens up under sun so as to let you see better with the glare around you.

Its normal. Its just the sensor activating. If you wanna dim or brighten it yourself got the scroll wheel on the right below the headlamp system.

Just noticed that the door can be open from inside when it is "LOCKED" unless it is set to "child lock"

Is there any other way to prevent the door to be open from inside when driving?? 

tyvm!

No. Europe safety standards, In the event of a collision, drivers / passengers should be able to open the doors to exit the car without the risk of the lock mechanism getting spoilt to lock the passengers in.
