I do not think Workbench and MAMP are interconnected in any way.. they are both different type of software. I would safely install the 64 bit version.. (however there is no harm in installing 32 bit version if you don't want to take a risk in case I am wrong)..

Thanks, I did install the mySQL client stuff and it doesn;t see mySQL server that I installed and am running (installed with the XAMPP/MAMP package).
