I just got this plant 3 weeks ago, it used to be all green but it started browning at the top almost immediately after I got it. I don't know what it's called. Please help!

It's looks like some form of conifer - a tree which grows outdoors, not a houseplant. Probably too warm and dry.
I planted a couple of these in winter window boxes one year then transferred them to the garden. They grew to about 3m high in just a couple of years and I was wondering how to tackle them when a -25C frost killed them. Sorted.

Agree with Obelixx - however you bought that plant, it isn't one for indoors. Unless you have a garden and want a conifer in it, I'd forget it . Bit harsh but that is how we all learn
Cupressus macrocarpa 'Goldcrest' ; an exceptionally vigorous outdoor conifer ; then again I can't think of many 'indoor' conifers
Thanks so much everyone!!
