I would talk to your manager. They may have logged it as annual leave, which would explain the pay, in which case you'll need to know to adjust your balance/request pay is docked instead.

Only way to know is talk to HR it your manager smile

No one here can tell you when your employer makes deductions. Assuming you've checked your staff handbook/policy/contract and have no reason to think you're entitled to paid leave for this absence, you need to say to your manager that you were expecting a week's pay to be deducted in January and it hasn't been, could she confirm when it will be taken out or what's happened.
