Hi, welcome to our side ! I have a bad news for you, parrot does not provide any 32bit iso anymore. You downloaded the 64bit iso and obviously it doesnt work on 32bit cpu.
If you want to install parrot, install Debian and change the debian repo to parrot repo then run sudo apt update and sudo apt dist-upgrade the last one will transform your debian install into parrot.

Here is the documentation about parrot mirror:

Yes if you still have a 32 bit iso of parrot you can install it.

And about my solution to transform debian into parrot, this is a bit experimental, i have never done it myself but i heard of people doing it without issue. The result maybe a bit unstable. I have no idea how well it can go.
Give me a feedback if you try it.
