The pitcher need to develop more but I believe it is N. ventricosa

If you picked it up from a garden store, it's probably a ventricosa.

I disagree that it is a ventricosa, the ala or wing is too prominent & fringed, no waving or ruffle in the peristome, & bulbous at the bottom. Plus the main leaf blade is unlike that of ventricosa, too long & narrow.

It looks more like Nepenthes 'coccinea' ( N. x coccinea). This particular hybrid is a cross between N. rafflesiana & N. ampullaria and then it is crossed with N. mirabilis. It is a complex hybrid & it is quite easy to grow, so it is often sold in stores.
