To install the GFI outlet I have to pigtail the white together and connect them to the terminal and same with the black but where do I get the extra little wire to go from the pigtail to the terminal? Do I just splice open a romex cable or do they sell individual red/black, white 12awg wire for this?

Cut a piece of romex about 6" (or however) long, strip off the sheathing and voila, you have white, black and ground pigtails.

You can usually put two wires under a screw on a GFCI. They have back wire terminals and allow a wire on each side of the screw.
