So I dont really understand that website, if someone could tell me what kind of turtle I have I would much appreciate it. I am assuming a yellow belly slider.

That looks to be a gulf coast box turtle due to the color of the shell and flared marginals on the carapace.  There's an outside chance that its a 3-toed box turtle.  Please note that 3-toeds can have 3 or 4 nails on the hind limbs.  It appears to be a younger turtle.

I got this Turtle as an informal Christmas present from my father. He had a friend who didn't want it any more, so one day I came home and I was told he/she (not sure) is mine. I truly love having him (her?) but I feel sorry for him because I don't have much knowledge on what species he is or how to properly care for him. Help ?
