There is no way of knowing if "Your Computer" has detected anything!

You can however view some of the work units you have handed back and you will see what was found for that particular task. Here is an example of one done on your computer!; http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=857072951

You can see generally how the SETI@home project is doing here; Science status page

They are looking for;
Spikes
Gaussians
Pulses
Triplets

If they detect other life, you will read about it in your local news paper and on every TV channel in the world!

John.
