What is 169.254.x.x IPv4 address?

169.254.x.x is a link-local IP address that gets assigned automatically when, generally, DHCP is not available. On Windows operating system, this is called APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing). RFC 3927 defines the address block for use in the link-local assignments. Note that routers are not supposed to route traffic from this address block.
