Alarm & key alarm

ok, most BMW's I've worked with in fact all, when alarm is set on the car the red light under the rearview mirror blinks.. now this is probably a stupid question but do they all blink when alarm is engaged? Mine does not. Is that normal?
second, if you press the lock button 2times then press & hold isn't it supposed to manually set off my alarm ??
I guess basic question is.. does my car even have an alarm? I've not once heard my alarm, & there is a red light that blinks on my factory head unit.. supposedly it's supposed to blink faster as a sensor picks up motion. That is what my manual said, but it also said that it would go off if I press and hold the lock button ..
I just want to know my cars alarm is properly engaged .. if it has one.
