The arrow facing upwards is the correct alignment.
Your sensors may be picking up objects to the side of the car just out of the line of reverse which is normal.
My sensors often pick up posts and kerbs not directly behind the vehicle.
Most outer sensors normally point out at an angle due to the shape of the bumper.

Moving the outer sensors in a bit is probably not an available option.

 

A false alarm is better than not detecting something that you then reverse into.

To find a faulty sensor turn them on and lightly put your finger on the main face you should feel a quick pulsing

I've had the same problem when I installed parking sensors at the front.

The original Ford PDC sensor must be placed horizontal.

So the connector should be on the side, not at the top or bottom.
