Default Blue Antifreeze

I have a 2005 C230K with 30K miles, I am going to flush the coolant system. The current antifreeze is blue and the antifreeze I purchased from MB is orange. Is this normal? The parts guy said that it gets filled from the factory with blue. I don't believe him because before he told me this he asked if I had changed my fluid before. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Brett

MB coolant should be pee-yellow, not orange.
chassis221 is right, blue is factory fill.
