Can anybody help me out here, or guide me where to start? In the image, the net electrostatic force in Qa is equal to 0, if Qa = +1.00 nC, what is the magnitude of Q0

Find the force acting on Qa from each of the other three charges, using Coloumb's law. Sum them up and set it equal to zero. This will enable you to find Q_0.

How can I know the distance between Qa and Q0?

Pythagorus' Theorem. Call that distance r. Then \[ r^2 = (2a)^2 + (-2a)^2 = 8a^2 \] hence as r is positive, \[ r = \sqrt{8}a = 2\sqrt{2}a \]

pythagorus theorem wont do, its not making a right angled triangle, use the point distance formula

It is making a right-angled triangle with respect to the coordinate directions. And that is exactly how we derive the formula for distance in Euclidean space.

we can directly use the , point distance formula here http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/math/4/0/8/408e1a8e214282114e49fc9f2abee36d.png
