uname -a

If you are fully updated you should see:

32bit:
Linux hostname 3.2.0-24-generic-pae #37-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 25 10:47:59 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

64bit:
Linux hostname 3.2.0-24-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 25 08:43:22 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Open the dash and enter in search bar: system
System-Monitor - first tab: System will tell the current kernel.

https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-help/unity-dash-intro.html

Alternatively in a terminal: ctrl+alt+t
Enter:
uname -r

New kernel or other package updates will be announced by update-manager.
