"Er" means a lot of things. It's an abbreviation for Emergency Room. It's the symbol for erbium, which is a metal you've probably never heard of (it's soft and shiny with a silvery-rose colored sheen). It's also a suffix used on the end of a lot of better words, like "computer" or "dinner." However, none of those meanings really apply in Scrabble. As a word, "er" basically just expresses hesitation or uncertainty. It's a way to correct yourself when you've said something incorrect or rude. And it's a quick way to use some of the most popular Scrabble tiles for a few extra points. If you play the word strategically, you might capitalize on someone else's word placement, too.
If you've read the Harry Potter series, you've probably noticed "er" a lot. JK Rowling (the author) seems to like it.
