The only way we have been shown to convert between concentration and partial pressure in class is using PV=nRT. So if you don't have temperature, based on what we know for this class so far, I don't think you can find partial pressure. But maybe it'll be covered in class later!
In Wednesday's class I'll cover this.
The total pressure of a system is the sum of all of the partial pressures. If you want to find the partial pressure of a specific gas within the system, you multiply the total pressure (exerted by all of the gases) by the mole fraction of the specific gas whose partial pressure you want to calculate. To find the mole fraction of a given gas, you divide the moles of the given gas by the total number of moles in the system.
