It is Om Namoh Durgeh in Devanagari script while considering the two dots are visarga. It is a mantra dedicated to Goddess Durga.

Below is IAST transliteration.

oṃ namoḥ durgeḥ

It means salutations to Durga.

But some people put ':' after a word to indicate a long sound. If that is the case, it is

Oṃ namo durge

The second pronunciation is right.

For the correct mantra containing Om, it should be Om Durgayai namaha

Oṃ durgāyai namaḥ
