My daughter is 2 months and a week and half old and I don't know when I should give her some water to drink.

Not until she's older. At this stage, breast milk or formula is all that is needed.

At 6 months you can start to give water......you never want water to replace milk. Milk already has a lot of water in it, so a baby does not need water. What I did with my kids was at 6 months I started to put water in a sippy cup. This is a good way to allow them to learn how to drink from a sippy cup. They won't be able to get much at first, so this also helps so they don't get too much water.
