rearrange, then complete the square ....

16x = 4y^2 + 4y + 13

4x = y^2 + y **+ 1/4 - 1/4** + 13/4

4x = (y + 1/2)^2 -1/4 + 13/4

4x = (y+1/2)^2 - 3

x = (1/4)(y + 1/2)^2 - 3/4

can you read the vertex from that?

so is it (-3/4,-1/2)?

yes, good for you to notice that you had to read the x and y in inverse form.
