I'm trying to install Windows Subsystem for Linux but I can't find it in my control panel.

I see your specs, you are however, using Windows 10 32-bit on 64-bit processor.

Check configuration - For the features of Linux to run on a given system, it requires a 64-bit version of Windows 10.

I don't think this is possible with 32-bit Windows.
