Try XFoil, it's a free download, just Google for it.

Theres a lot to ways to do it, what charles tells you itīs right, try with XFoil, or i can recomend you another airfoil analysis software calles VisualFoil who has a more extensive airfoil database. If what you need is another airfoil with a diferent thikness, try to mulitly your airfoil with a constant (1.2) for example and with that way you will create a new airfoil.
