Levels Effect not showing anything in Histogram

Greetings, I'm not much experienced so far in AfterEffects, nevertheless, I'm facing an issue, which I'm unable to solve.

 

I'm trying to create a realistic water flow. I already created the animation and paths, but when I came across the texture, I was unsuccessful in doing it. I'm halfly following this tutorial => https://youtu.be/GLwpCNil3XE?si=D70xb_fRAtc3wta3&t=1181 ... the differences, which I'm doing. 1. The water is on an object, so I'm not using CC Glass effect and 2. I created specific paths with the pen tool and then animation by Taper and Trim paths. 

 

I found out two problems:

1. When I click on the TrackMatte setting on the BackGround layer. I only see "No Matte" and the two layers, while there should be Four options + No Matte (Alpha Matte / Inverted, Luma Matte / Inverted). If I choose the Water flow layer. The result looks similar to the tutorial, so I'm not sure if it is a problem.

2. When I add Levels Effect on the Water flow layer. I got nothing in the Histogram and if I try to move any of the settings, it changes nothing, which is stopping me in creating the texture.

 

I suppose it's because of some settings, but I don't know. If someone will be able to help me, I'll be grateful

 

I'm on Windows btw

This is the content of the layer, which is showing nothing in the Levels Effect (without the black background)
