Kittens want five things: food, water, a clean litter box, someone to play with, and lovies.
Let it get used to the house and then it will start coming out. Give it plenty of spaces to expolore and toys to play with. Cats bond mainly with the people who feed them and play with them so try to put time into both.
You need to start training now. If you don't want the cat on the counters then keep a squirt bottle in the kitchen to squirt it when it gets up. It's also important to have a designated scratching area. If it's a scratching post or a little box style from walmart on the floor that's great. Give the cat treats for scratching where you want it to and squirts for everywhere you don't. This is also the time to start leash training if you're interested in that.
That should get you started. Good luck!1
