All fluid types and capacities are in your owner's manual.

You just wanted someone else to tell you what to use.

I will not make the same mistake again.

I don't think you would need to do a coolant change at this point. But it couldn't hurt either.

I would change it due to the time frame, even with low miles. Somewhere I read about using distilled water for the 50%.
