I have the +48V push rectangle on my small Behringer 602A. How do I know if the phantom power is on or off? Is it on when the light is red and button is pushed in? I am starting with a condenser mic with the button out. I engage mic, then push in button. Correct?

It shows if there is phantom power coming down the line.
I have one that shows if the phantom power is on the right pin or not (wrongly wired pins can fry ribbons).
