I am trying to download anti-virus program but it requires me to know if my Mac is 32 bit or 64 bit and I honestly have no idea. Can someone please help?

Macs are 64-bit. But you may wish to skip AV software. It's really not needed.

An excellent link to read is Tom Reed's Mac Malware Guide.

Also, visit The XLab FAQs and read Detecting and avoiding malware and spyware.

If you require anti-virus protection I recommend using ClamXav.
