Bonjour Jan !

You could use either, it means slightly different things:

"Vous prenez du sucre ?" -> Do you [always] take sugar?

"Vous prendrez du sucre ?" -> Will you take sugar [with this]?

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !

Bonjour Meghna !

In the Star Wars mythology, a Padawan is a Jedi apprentice, a child who's learning to control the Force ;)

À bientôt !
Getting that for you now.
