In brief: Might not show
Depending on the test that is being run, it might not show.
Some tests require there to be gluten in the diet in order to tell that the body can't probably handle the gluten protein.

In brief: Yes
Even if a person is on a gluten-free diet, he should still have celiac disease antibodies in his blood if he has gluten allergy.
The blood test can still be done.
