According to the parts list for your notebook, it comes with a Realtek RTL8188EE Wi-Fi adapter.
That model Wi-Fi adapter is not a combination Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter.
That is why your notebook has no Bluetooth.
If you are interested, you can upgrade the RTL8188EE Wi-Fi card with this model which is both dual band AC with Bluetooth:
Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.
The card has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz Wi-Fi band with an AC router and an excellent signal.
You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express.
I see some Intel 3165 cards listed on the eBay listings, so don't buy those.
On the Ali Express listings, make sure the card has the HP Part # of 915620-001.
Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the Wi-Fi card removal and replacement procedure.
