I am so glad I did have have my kids during the autism panic. Geez, every single behavior is scrutinized. Should he be talking? yes. But my son had a speech delay as well. Get an evaluation done. I feel like parents spend so much time worrying about "is my kid autistic?" that they don't even enjoy them! Most of what you describe is totally normal!

Sounds pretty normal... ummm, the not pointing thing is the only thing that stands out to me as possibly a spectrum disorder, but that could just be a learned behavior that whining gets him what he wants so why take the extra effort to point... everything else though, just sounds like he's two years old and discovering what works and what he likes... still for your own peace of mind have him evaluated.
For your own knowledge and awareness I would suggest a movie called "Vaxxed"
