looks like a baby cooter.give it a 10 gal tank,filled halfway.you can use bottled or filtered water if you want,but i've kept my turts in plain old city tap water for years,with no adverse effects.
give it a basking spot,where it can haul itself completely out of the water.rocks,bricks,and plastic turtle docks all work well.

if you're keeping it indoors,give it a basking light that provides uvb lighting.you can usually get a clamp on light and bulb for $20 or so,a 75 watt should be more than enough.set the light so that it's within 10" or so from the basking spot.

feed it a varied diet,(if you use commercial pellets,purchase a couple different brands,and mix them up.feel free to add dried shrimp and krill,turtles go nuts for them).as it gets older,it will need more of a vegetarian diet,mainly consisting of water plants.
