When you first start your car, all of the lights on the dashboard should light up -- if there is no ABS light there, you probably do not have ABS on your car. The slightly more risky way to test it would be to take the car out on an unused access road and go about 20 to 25 miles per hour, then slam the breaks as hard as you can. If the tires squeal on the road, then you do not have ABS. Please make sure you are going to be safe if you try to test your breaks -- make sure there are no other cars on the road ... make sure the road is wide enough that if your car skids to one side or the other that you will not hit anything ... make sure that your wheels are straight when you hit the breaks so you do not lose control. If you do not have ABS, you should perform a controlled skid ... if you do, your car will not skid, and for just a moment you should feel your breaks take control for you (slight pumping motion of the pedal under your foot).
Generally, if there is ABS in a car, there is a light on the dashboard to warn you when the system is not working properly, so if you don't have a warning light, you don't have ABS.

sorry to tell you this but it sounds like the wheel bearing was put in backwards on one or both sides. the front wheel bearings have a black speed ring built in and that is what your speed sensor reads off. - this is common as the front bearings will install either way- hope this helps
