Unless you have installed something from Microsoft that include .NET, a Mac OS X computer won't normally be running it at all.

Are there any websites I can go to or utilities or programs I can download that will tell me what version of .Net is running on a Mac OS X computer?

If the computer isn't running .Net at all then all the website or utility needs to do is to tell me this.

I don't know of such a program.  This page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/macos-prerequisites?tabs=netcore2x says that .NET Core is only supported on macOS 10.12 "Sierra" and macOS 10.11 "El Capitan".  I see nothing that indicates the older Windows .NET versions are supported at all unless you have Mono installed for development.

Only .Net Core is supported on non Microsoft Windows platforms. .Net Framework is only supported on Microsoft Windows platform.
