Are Windows updates automatic or do I have to check to see if new ones need to be installed?

They can be automatic if you set them up that way. We’ve covered the topic before and here are a couple of helpful articles you should check out.

It’s important to make sure you have the latest updates for security purposes, so I like to have my updates set to automatic.
