Hey, when I checked my Task manager, it's showing me that I have a 32-bit version of panda on my x64 windows 10.

It all depends on how the antivirus software works.

32-bit programs might not be able to interoperate directly with running 64-bit processes (other than through the Windows API), but they do not yet have access to the entire file system including files containing 64-bit code. So technically yes a 32-bit antivirus could still do it's job and identify viruses in 64-bit files via traditional file-scanning techniques.

The fact that an application is installed into C:\Program Files (x86) doesn't actually mean it's 32-bit.

You can have 64-bit applications running from C:\Program Files (x86)
You can have 32-bit applications running from C:\Program Files.
Many applications actually contain a mix of 32-bit and 64-bit files but install to only either C:\Program Files (x86) or C:\Program Files. A good example is VMware Workstation. On my 64-bit system, it installs to C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation. The files installed to that location are a mix of 32-bit and 64-bit EXE/DLL files, among other random files.
So what's the name and version of the antivirus software you're running? Chances are good that it does have 64-bit components in there and that they are being used on your 64-bit system.

You can easily check what bitness your background antivirus processes are running as by launching Resource Monitor. You just need to make sure the Platform column is showing (right click on any column then click on Select Columns....

You can also put the suggestion in the suggestion area.

When 64 bit processors compatible with the x86 architecture were introduced, they were referred to as x86-64. x86-32 (and x86-16) were used for the 32 (and 16) bit versions. This was eventually shortened to x64 for 64 bit and x86 alone refers to a 32 bit processor. The 32 bit processors are designed to handle a limited amount of physical memory maximum of 4GB but 64 bit can handle high memory utilizing 8,16 and some even32 GB. On a 64-bit Windows you can use either version. On a 32-bit Windows you should use only x86 obviously.
