No.

One is IR(infrared) sensor. If this one comes on, you can not see it. It's invisible to the naked eyes. Only animals, snakes and IR cameras can see it.
The red light that you see when pressing lightly on the shutter button is the AF assist light, not a sensor.

You can see that by looking at a mirror.
