"Check Brake Light"

No one's around to assist me so it's hard to see which bulbs are out. When it gives me this warning:

1) how many brake lights are there in each side for me to check?

2) manual says it recommends BMW special bulbs with neutral color so do I have to go to the dealer?

3) is it easy simple to replace them?
