Please don't use all CAPS. It makes it hard to read and is reserved for SHOUTING.

Yes, you need to open up the box with the switch and see what is there.

There is a good chance that the red wire is a "spare" so that you can replace the switch with fan controller that had a separate switch/dimmer for the line and a fan speed control.
