Click on the apple icon in the upper left. Then select:
System preferences
security
filevault

The window will say whether a master password has been set, and if not it will allow you to set one.

Thanks! I was beginning to lose hope.

As an alternative, use Spotlight (the little magnifying glass at the top right of your screen) and search for 'master password'.
