    >I go to Actions menu in my list and select “Alert Me”

    This is not your alert which you have created earlier. Whenever you clicks on "Alert Me" option, it will always create a new alert. If you want to modify or See your alert then Go to Site Action--->Select "User Alerts" from site administration section.

    > while I understand my Alert not coming to my mail

    If mail is not coming then see your outgoing email configuration in central admin. Also check this URL
