There should already be a Login principal for your Windows user in SQL Server under Security | Logins
You can create a database user principal in the required database associated with the Login principal
CREATE USER <yourDBUser> FOR LOGIN <YourWindowsUser>

You can then give whatever permissions you required to <yourDBUser>
