Use the definition of a circle.

Maybe your real question is how to find the equation of this circle so that you can find its x- and y-intercepts ....?

In which case you need to recall the standard form $(x - h)^2 + (y - k)^2 = r^2$ where r is the radous and (h, k) are the coordinates of the centre.
