Post blower not working

hi all! Maybe someone could help me? I have a 2001 318i (UK) , i recently replaced it's expansion tank and i followed the DIY guide that i've read here. After putting it back together everything went fine. After a few days, while driving the coolant indicator flashes. I have checked the water/coolant level and it's within the limit. Other than that, when i turned the a/c on no air is coming out from the vents but the controls seemed to be alright. Can anyone help me please? Cheers!

Hi! Thank you for your quick reply. I just don't understand why the blower malfunctioned lately, does it have any connection with the recent replacement that i did? or was it just the normal wear and tear? or did i mess up any electrical system? Just really worried... As for the bleeding, would it be alright to do eventhough the blower is not working? sorry to be a nuisance but i know that your expertise and experience will truly help a new guy like me... Cheers!
