When bodybuilding, is it better to take whey protein supplements immediately after workouts or regularly throughout the day?

Both: You need more protein than a regular person does, so you will need to increase its intake. Before work outs - yes, but you will need to take more protein as well on a daily basis, so spreading it throughout the day is good too.
