I need to fill a look up value with query string parameter in custom new form in sharepoint 2013. what should I do?

Use javascript by adding a Content Editor to the page or adding it to the markup itself. I did something similar, picked up ContactId from Query String. Picked up this code from here

    <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">

    jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

        //get the Contact ID from they query string
        var contactId = getParameterByName("contactId");

        //Set the corresponding Lookup field value to the Contact ID
        $("select[title='Contact Name']").val(contactId);    

        //use this line to disable the lookup field selection
        $("select[title='Contact Name']").attr('disabled','disabled')

        //use this line to hide the lookup field and label entirely
        //$("select[title='Contact Name']").closest("tr").hide();            
    });

    function getParameterByName(name)
    {
      name = name.replace(/[\[]/, "\\\[").replace(/[\]]/, "\\\]");
      var regexS = "[\\?&]" + name + "=([^&#]*)";
      var regex = new RegExp(regexS);
      var results = regex.exec(window.location.href);
      if(results == null)
        return "";
      else
        return decodeURIComponent(results[1].replace(/\+/g, " "));
    }

    </script>

    This is working code. Make sure that the id's are right. 1. Use the inspectors in IE, chrome or (firefox + firebug) to check the title attribute. 2. You can debug javascript by adding breakpoints and stepping through the code in the browser 3. Check the values of the statements by copy pasting them into Javascript console in the browser. – Arsalan Shahid May 25 '15 at 19:50

    And make sure you change line 1 to a location where jquery.min.js exists – Per Jakobsen May 25 '15 at 20:04
  • Updated the jquery src reference to google cdn. Good catch Per Jakobson – Arsalan Shahid May 25 '15 at 20:13
