You could simply open server manager (usually there is a quicklink on the taskbar and start menu) and take a look at the installed roles.

If you are on a server with no graphical interface, or just prefer working through powershell, you can use the below from a powershell.

Import-Module servermanager

Another easy way is to get IP address by running ipconfig. Then perform nslookup for the domain fqdn (ie nslookup domain.local).  If the IP is in the list then it is a DC.
