From my experience and knowledge of spouse Visa’s having a small overdraft on your account should not be an issue.

Is Immigration asking for bank statements? If so, it may be just to verify your income, and that you meet the income level that is required if your spouse is not working and/or you are bringing them to the UK.

Can you pay the £200? If so, you may wish to do this.

Again, to my knowledge, having a small overdraft alone should not hinder the Visa process. However, it may be a sign of other financial issues.
