imap or pop

How can I tell if my account is imap or pop?

Comcast's servers work with either protocol, so you'd need to check the program or app you are using to see which one is selected. See https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/email-client-programs-with-xfinity-email.

I clicked edit under account and I have imap. Is that sufficient to get and receive email?

Yes.  What client are you using?  Outlook, Mac Mail, Thunderbird, Windows Mail10 or something else?
