I will be honest with you, if you don't know how to take care of a leopard gecko, you probably should not have adopted it. It is always best to research things prior to adopting animals. Leopard geckos require a certain diet and heating/lighting requirements. They also should not be kept in sand substrate as this can lead to an eye infection. What do you have your gecko in right now and what are you feeding it?

Crickets are fine but you will want to dust them with a supplement. You also need to give them access to calcium at all times. Most pet stores carry reptile calcium. You shouldn't keep crickets in the tank after your gecko is done eating either as they can cause stress on your gecko and this can lead to skin issues and losing their tail.
