Read the Apache error.log file for clues about Apache Server 500 errors:

You don't put that in anywhere, you go there in Windows Explorer because it is the location of the error log file.
.\ is the root directory you installed XAMPP in which might be C:\ for example or could be just about anywhere on your PC, but you did not include much information, did you?

You open the error.log file in your text editor.

BTW you are the Webmaster mentioned in the error you posted so now might be a good time to do some reading and learning.
