Hi

I suppose you would like to know if your website is vulnerable to the heartbleed bug right?
If yes check on the link http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/

If not, you need to logon to the Linux server hosting the website and run
OPENSSL  
version

@SrikantRajeev: testing is a good idea - here is a handy testing tool:

https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/

And you might want to consider installing one of the firefox or chrome plugins that give realtime display of the "heartbleed" bug whenever you visit a secure server.

note also - if your website is http and not https, it isn't running ANY sort of SSL, so is safe.

url for firefox link is also wrong, sorry - cut and paste fail there.

correct url is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/heartbleed-checker/

By the way, if you are not using ssl for your website, then no need to worry.
