Here's how you can find out when your domain password will expire.

To determine when the password for your Active Directory user account will expire, open a command prompt window and type the following command:

net user %USERNAME% /domain

The output of this command will span several lines, so look for the line that starts with "Password expires" and you can see the exact day and time when your domain password will expire.
