ACA penalty for a new immigrants?

Registered users do not see advertisement
Hello everyone,
Until today I was sure, I can't get a penalty but my friend suggested otherwise, so here's the question:

I came to US in mid April (I didn't have any income before in this year), I won a Green Card. Because at start I didn't have SSN or Green Card (they were about to be shipped to me within 2-8 weeks), I bought a travel insurance (it's not an ACA insurance). Then I was insured via ACA starting from Jun 1st.

1. First of all, will I punished for missing Jun-May months? I wasn't even in this country in the first 3.5 months.

2. Will I be punished for May?

3. How should I fill my tax return? My insurance company sent me this document, with months checked and the first month is "June", but my arrival is April.

Thanks for advice!
