The Info panel will tell you what position your mouse is at.

To display your info panel go to Window > Info, or hit F8 on your keyboard.

Also note that it may default to a unit of measurement other than pixels such as centimeters or inches. If this is the case, click on the "+." next to X and Y as highlighted in the picture above, and select Pixels from the drop-down menu.
