It looks like you have the same display that I have. My display has an ILI9486 controller.

So your display may work with my library ZxTFT.
Download as ZIP-file and add with Library Manager method Add ZIP-file.
It doesn't support touch, you would need to add touch through a separate library.
You could also use GxTFT, but this library is more complicated to use.

Caution: I see that I used it with Arduino Due. You may need to use level converters or series resistors or resistor voltage dividers with Arduino MEGA.
