Yes you are running a 32bit host kernel on a 64bit host machine.
That should not be a problem - but you could run a 64bit kernel.
(and still run either 32bit or 64bit guests)
I do that myself (uname -a):
Linux wolf-c2q 126.96.36.199-vs188.8.131.52.2 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Dec 21 12:21:07 CST 2008 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9300 @ 2.50GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
(note the x86_64 which some distro's have adopted over the older "amd64" tag)
