Probabiltiy density rho(k,t) of k at time t?

A free 1-D particle has initial wave function psi(x)=A exp(-x^2/4a^2)

What is the probability density rho(k,t) that a wavevector measurement at time t will measure k?

Please see attachment. I am confused on how to find the probability density of the time dependent wavefunction.

Please help since I have an upcoming test. Thanks
