I live in Las Vegas, Nevada and it’s supposed to get down to 32 or 33 this winter. We planted the tree in early August.

No you don't need to cover a peach tree for frost protection in Henderson.
But if you haven't started a dormant spray program you should do that as soon as possible. Horticultural oil and copper fungicide is used to prevent overwintering fungus infections like peach leaf curl, and insect pest eggs and larvae that can also overwinter and resume infestations in spring.
