If It Doesn't Say In Contains Gluten Does This Mean Its Definitely Gluten Free

Likewise, you will have to discover, when you see that a product is made in a shared facility, or even on a shared line (which is thoroughly cleansed between runs), whether or not you are sensitive to this. Some are, some aren't. Many people on here will eat only products made in a dedicated facility. So there may be a glutening or two in store for you along the way until lyou determine your own level.
Also, if you do react to a product, do keep in mind that it might not be the gluten you are reacting to. Many of us discover after eliminating gluten that we have other intolerances. It is often suggested to keep a food and symptom diary so you can track down reactions. This is most useful if you don't add a whole bunch of new foods all at once.

There is a FAQ section here that addresses safe/unsafe ingredients:
There are many mainstream products that are free from gluten ingredients but are not labeled as gluten-free. My daughter enjoys many of them. In the beginning of the diet, it is best to go with as simple of a whole foods diet that you can manage (I know, sometimes you've got to treat yourself). You'll have good days and bad days as your gut heals and it may not have anything to do with what you ate. If you try something that doesn't settle well with you, eliminate it for a while. Let your gut have some more healing time and try it later down the road.
Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

When I shop, I look at the entire range of products that are available from a company, including the ingredients, packaging, etc. If it looks like anything else with wheat may have been processed on the same line as something wheat (which is why I look at packaging... anything else in the same packaging was probably processed on the same lines) I'll usually put off the purchase until I can find out more, because I am highly sensative and will react to a lot of things other people may not react to (like Van's waffles).
If you don't have to be that cautious, be happy. But sadly, you can either be that cautious from the start, or go through some trial and error.
