I am using pretty much the default theme color however, I do want to change the highlighted background color inside the parenthesis.
Is there any specific Face Attributes setting for this specific case?

(set-face-attribute 'show-paren-match-expression nil :background "yellow")
If you want to tweak a face, positioning the cursor on a character and hitting
what-cursor-position) will open a buffer with information about the faces used to display that character (that's how I found out about
show-paren-match-expression). If you click on a face that interests you Emacs will open its documentation, saying in which library it's defined, with a link to the library. Click it. Most definitions have a
:group keyword, for example
:group 'paren-showing-faces. You can invoke
customize-group and give it that keyword as argument, i.e. you can type
M-x customize-group RET paren-showing-faces RET and you'll be brought to a buffer with a list of options for that topic.
