What is the normal female karyotype

I know XX is but what's the normal number in front of that is 46,XX normal chromosomes?

You should have 23 pairs of chromosomes total, including the sex chromosomes, for a total of 46.  The notation 46,XX seems to be the accepted way of writing that down (total # of chromosomes, which sex chromosomes you have).
