    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.
