Also, i can’t see the version of wordpress I’m using in the dashboard… Can you help me out? Thanks. The blog I need help with is theportraitsessions.wordpress.com.

More info here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/ Also, when you use WordPress.COM, you automatically use the latest version. The version number is only indicated in WordPress.ORG.
