Object Tracking Problems

Hey guys, so I’ve recently started getting into Blender’s camera tracking! Awesome feature, but I’ve been sort of lost when trying object tracking. I can’t get the markers in 3d view to display for the tracking scene. Blender will not allow me to press the setup Tracking scene button. I only did object tracking, no camera tracking. I feel as though the problem is coming from not camera tracking. I filmed a still shot of my friend with markers on his face just moving his head around. Is it still required that I camera track the background to setup a tracking scene so I can see the tracking points in 3d view?
