      Hi , can you tell me should I fill the tank with water before meshing or not ? I want to analyse the recharge time of the tank with replacement of hot water with cold water. Please help me

      Meshing occurs before you get to the solver, so until you create the mesh there's nothing to fill. Work through some of the tutorials to better understand the workflow.

      Thanks, and I've one more question, What value to give for Pressure operating , for incompressible ideal gas density condition. and  please tell me how to calculate it.

      It's whatever makes sense for the problem. Typically ambient (outside) pressure, so 101325 Pa, and set the boundary conditions to suit. In your case operating pressure is the ambient, and used to then calculate gauge pressure.
