Yours is unfortunately a color morph of the invasive Asian lady beetle, Harmonia axyridis form spectabilis. Note the white part at the margins of the pronotum.

The black ones with 4 red spots are called spectabilis, whereas the one with only 2 red spots is conspicua.

Adalia bipunctata would look like this:
