I would guess it to be a yearling. This time of year feeding can be tricky, as the turtle may have started to shut down for brumation, if it was outside before you bought it, I know that my outsiders have not fed in the last 3 weeks and in a couple weeks will be going under for good untill spring.
I would hope that once your turtle settles in to it's new home and provided that it has enough heat, it will begin feeding soon.
Personally I would brumate a second fall turtle, but without knowing the history and health and feeding, it's difficult to recommend that.
Hopefully you will be able to keep him or her warm and active and feeding thru the winter.
Best of luck
