You can't change it. The focus peaking color is white.

The gold/yellow, if anything, would be the shadow alert feature.

I think we may have to wait for the next pentax model to see an improved implementation of peaking. As it is right now it's oftentime borderline useless for scenes that don't have any hard edges.

Yep, if you have a blinking field it is either the shadow or highlight alert - this alerts you that there is no usable data in that area (pure white, or pure black). You can disable this feature, or use it if you shoot raw and want to avoid clipping.
Focus peaking right now is still the same as it was on the first K-01. Its a great feature, but it could use an update. Most notably customizable colours and sensitivity. Nothing we can do, though.
