Or actually, more specific to your question:
Thread.CurrentThread.GetHashCode();

Here's a good article on threading in .NET:

What thread are you looking to get the ID for? You can use the ManagedThreadID instance property of any Thread object, the Name instance property, or GetHashCode() should work as well.

If you're looking to get the Threads in a certain process, create an instance of a System.Diagnostics.Process object that is linked to that process, and use the "Threads" instance property. This returns a collection of the Threads currently running in that given process. If you want the threads in the current process, call System.Diagnostics.Process.GetCurrentProcess().Threads.

Hope I helped,
Nate
