There are many resources in the forums. Look around:
Pentax DA Zoom Lense Lens Reviews and Specifications - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

It should be 52. You do not need a cap with a badge but always read reviews first to be aware of what you are buying. I have bought several caps from amazon.
Amazon.com: 52mm lens cap

It's marked on the name ring just inside the filter thread on your lens, and right at the bottom in this pic:



All three 18-55 DA lenses have a 52mm thread.

Np. Just about any pinch type 52mm cap should be fine. It wouldn't matter what brand it's intended for, afaik. You don't need Pentax brand ones, unless you want them.
