why my night shoot is so warm colored?

hi, all:

several nights ago, i attended a party with my new k-5 and DA 18-135 lenses. After taking some photoes, I found my picture wasn't clear or too dark. If i put higher iso like 6400 or higher, my picture would have many dots. if lower, my photo is too dark. I don't want to use built-in flash since the result wasn't that good. i think i put white balance on AWB. how can i do in such not well lit home enviornment? did i do something wrong?

BTW, I use P mode.
