Why is turbo tax asking me about contributions to a roth IRA then?

To help you keep track of your contributions in case you need to withdraw them prior to age 59 1/2.

Yes, you can put down that you are planning on contributing even if you haven't done so yet - just be sure to do so prior to April 15, if you want the TurboTax tracking to be correct.
