Here is a really good walk-through on this topic:

I can't tell you for sure, because I don't know ho wyou set this up, but it is either going to be in the trace output on the page or possibly in the output window (Debug->Windows->Output) in the IDE.

It writes the message to any tracelistener that is added to the Trace.Listeners collection.
You can add "Listeners" in code using the Trace.Listeners.Add( ...) method or through the app.config file.
When you "Debug" a debugtracelistener is added by the visualstudio by default to output all that is traced in the output window as told by Dan7el.
