D5100 Highlight Headroom

I'm trying to determine how much highlight headroom this camera has. The RGB histogram often shows a spike in the form of a thin line in one or more color channels on the right side. Are these thin spikes a true indication of blown highlights? How accurate are the blinkies? Is there a way of finding out how much highlight headroom the camera actually has beyond what shows on the histogram or blinkies without using complicated software like Raw Digger?

I'm Using neutral picture control and raw processing in ACR latest version.
