How can you tell if you have enough or too little light?

Are you talking about light in terms of for your fish or plants or what? For fish, as long as they're not trying to hide, they are probably fine with it. Are you trying to grow plants? What kinds?

Various swords and a red plant that's losing color are there any signs?

If your plant ain't dying, you have enough light.
If you're growing algae, you have too much light.
