Can my administrator see my search history?

My gmail account is managed by my company. I was on my home computer and logged into my work managed gmail account and went to change the search history and location history to private on the account. It said this when I went to the private section under the Account History and Places You've Been section:
 
"Search History has been disabled by your administrator" and "Location History has been disabled by your administrator."
 
Does this mean that they have access to my search history and I don't? Or does this mean that both my location history and search history have been disabled so it has not been saved?

No they don't have access to your search history.  and that error notice mean that your admin haven't enable the search history on the company google apps account.
