Most likely, it's a ceramic cap and the value info is only printed on the reel it's from not each component. It will need to be measured. You might obtain some "series" type info from the physical size of the cap, but otherwise it can't be "read" as with thru-hole parts.

edit: If you go to this link you'll find a free pdf review of a component identification guide. Through-hole and surface mount.

Look here:
only electrolytic cap versions are marked. But most SMD foil caps and ceramic caps haven't marking.
BTW - URL is death in the meantime. Here the right URL
