I moved your post to the proper subforum (morphs and genetics as opposed to classifieds). Your gecko is an albino. There are 3 strains of albinio --Tremper, Bell and Rainwater (also called Las Vegas). The Tremper is the most common. There is no clear way to tell which strain you have by looking.

The only way to find out would be to breed it to a gecko with genes for a known albino strain and see which pairing results in albinos (because you would only get albinos from a parent of the same strain). The problem with that is for the pairings of 2 different strains, you'll end up with geckos that have genes for 2 different albino strains. There's no health issue, but there are consequences for keeping the genetic lines distinct and it's a problem for the hobby. There is no genetic mapping available for leopard geckos yet.
