How do I know if I have to flash my bios on my motherboard

I just bought a ASUS tuf gaming b550 plus motherboard and a ryzen 5600x cpu from the Tustin microcenter last weekend.  But I don’t know if I have to flash my bios on the motherboard before starting my build.  Idk how to call that specific store to get an answer on if their in store b550 motherboards are updated to a compatible or 5000 ready bios to work with the 5600x out the box.  Any answers or help ?   I plan on building my first pc later today and this has come up in my recent research as a possible issue.
