I'm not sure what you mean by highlight the location.
Is it a GUI? Are you colour coding the characters?

You shouldn't need to, you can treat the string as a
indexes = [i for i, c in enumerate(X) if char == '0']
Will give you the list of indexes you need.
How you use that to highlight the zeros will depend
on your UI I guess.
