I would like to check if my Arduino 101 can make bluetooth connection?

I keep getting the message "Not connected from central " when I run my code. What should I look for when I am having a situation like this? Please bear with me if my question is too broad, as I am a beginner to hardware programming.

My code is below (Its the line BLECentral central = blePeripheral.central(); that is causing trouble)
