Beware, you are confusing things a bit.
It's not xterm which wants to read your .bashrc
xterm can start a shell and this is where your .bashrc may get read.
What is actually read depends on
1) your shell, as specified in /etc/passwd
2) the switches given to xterm (esp. -ls and +ls)
So what I suggest:
a) assure that your login shell is bash.
you can use the command 'chsh' to view/set your shell
b) look whether there is a .profile in your HOME-directory
(read the section INVOCATION in 'man bash')
