1) Open a new document in Inkscape
2) Import the 'pic' (bitmap image)
3) with the imported image selected, open 'Path > Trace Bitmap…', adjust the options as needed, and click on the 'OK' button to have Inkscape trace the selected bitmap image and insert the vectorized result on top of the bitmap image.

For additional help, please consider reading the tutorial shipping with Inkscape:
-> Inkscape menu 'Help > Tutorials > Inkscape: Tracing'

The available options are also explained in detail in this section of the manual:
