check the wattage of your basking lamp, make sure it\'s not too bright for the tank size.
usually 50 Watt is good for a 10 or 15 gallon tank......or it might be a stressed turtle, leave it alone and give it some space, my turtles were hiding in water during the first few weeks I got them. and I was told to leave them alone and one day, walla, they were basking, I was really happy. Also, check you UV lightbulb as well.
good luck
