Looking from the stern, the prop turning clockwise is right handed, anti-clockwise is left handed for MOST manufacturers.
Plastic props usually have r or l cast in them.

To find the thread size, just try screwing on a nut of known size. You could start with 4 and 5 mm nuts which are very common.
 If you haven't got any they cost a few pence from a hardware shop. The nut should screw on easily without any slop.
