Simple Steps:
Step1 : Create a field (say FLAG) of type Checkbox. Set the default value to UNCHECKED.

Step2: In your Approval Process in the INITIAL SUBMISSION Action , create a Field Update. Update the FLAG to TRUE.

Step3: In your FINAL APPROVAL and REJECTION Actions, create a Field Update. Update the FLAG back to FALSE.

Step4: And done!!!! You can now find whether a record has been locked simply by checking the FLAG value. Be it in your Apex Class or Visualforce Page.
