cant find hard drive icon...

just bought a macbook today and when i started it up, i noticed there was no hard drive icon on the desktop. so i opened up the finder, and made the mistake by dragging the hard drive icon that is on the left side of the finder out of the finder and tried to put it on the desktop. instead it just deleted the icon and now im not able to find it. any help??

thank you.

Open up finder.
Preferences
General and sidebar both have options to display the hard drive where you want them to.
