If not listed, it's 32 bit. Windows XP x64 is very rare, because it's usually only used with a volume liscence. Most of the time you have to be a large company to get ahold of it.

As of July 2005, Windows XP 64-bit Edition is no longer supported, and no further security updates were made available.

When you open winver, look at the version number:

Version 5.1 is Windows XP.
Version 5.2 is Windows XP x86-64 edition
