I don't completely understand your requirement, so I assume you want to print a number only if there are two or more NOTE elements. Using the count() function shoudl do the trick, for example the following (changed some stuff to match the source XML you provided):

 <xsl:template match="Para">
   <xsl:for-each select="NOTE">
     <xsl:text>NOTE: </xsl:text>
     <xsl:if test="count(../NOTE) &gt; 1">
       <xsl:number level="single" format="1" count="NOTE"/>
       <xsl:text> </xsl:text>
     <span style="width:100%; font-weight:bold; padding-left:70px; ">

BTW both your resulting HTML and CSS are somewhat odd, for example the
position:absolute" for the prefix, and using HTML spans followed by a br
instead of a proper paragraph.
