This is perfectly normal operation. Around 2010 they merged the alarm warning light in to the center dash on the passenger airbag indicator. It is just a round red dot that turns on when you arm the alarm and then flashes as a deterrent until the vehicle is disarmed.
This function replaces the older layout that had a separate light on the dash. The new layout reduces parts ((and so reduces cost)).
Again this is perfectly normal operation and nothing to worry about.
