You'll need to configure the screen. From here:

dowload the driver:

wget http://www.waveshare.com/w/upload/4/4b/LCD-show-161112.tar.gz

unzip it:

tar xvf LCD-show-*.tar.gz
cd LCD-show/

Install the driver and it toggles the mode to LCD display: Note: Net work connection is required while installing driver to your Pi, or else the touch won't work properly.

chmod +x LCD35-show

Note: this LCD won't work after apt-get upgrade, in such cases, please edit the config.txt file in the SD card and remove this statement: dtoverlay=ads7846

After system rebooting, the RPi LCD is ready to use.

There is more info in the link provided. You should check it to see the options.
