    I just got this new hatchling red eared slider and I haven't seen him Baskin the UV rays at all yet. Is there something wrong?

    Describe your setup please. Size of tank, what lights, water and basking site temperature. And you say you just got it, how long ago? It will take any new animal time to get used to its new environment. Oh, and how big is the turtle? Very small hatchlings might have trouble getting up to the basking site, or it just may need time to figure out where that is.
