How can I know what pads to buy for my Tektro hydraulic brakes?

I can't see any model ID on my new bike's Tektro hydraulic brakes.

Added info: On the lever I see a model HD-E350

also I found this guide

and I see this code on the inward facing side of the caliper

I do see some ceramic Tektro pads on special that I might buy a couple of sets of, if they fit. They are listed as

More than likely those are the pads that you need, if you are not sure take the front wheel off and have a look at the pads that the bike came with, they are very easy to take out if you have the correct size wrench.

I think that is called the shimano pattern. Most common pattern; I got some off e-bay that were non-metallic and they fit. 5 mm allen wrench to get the caliper off and slip-joint plier to straighten the cotter pin to get it out, on my mechanical tektros.
