If I requested marriage counseling how do I know if it was granted, today I saw in the public records that it said order of referral to of/for arbitration/mediation, does this mean my petition for the counseling was denied?

By reading the "Response" to your question or comment, you agree that the opinion expressed is not intended to, nor does it, create any attorney-client relationship, nor does it constitute legal advice to any person reviewing such information, nor will it be considered an attorney-client privileged communication. If you do not agree, then stop right here, and do not read any further.
A court will generally not order marriage counseling for two parties who are not getting along. A judge might suggest it but it would be unusual for a court to order it. If you filed a motion, you need to set it down for a hearing and the judge will make a ruling at that time.
