How much light does a seedling need. Would a windowsill be enough or do I need to invest in a grow light

it depends how much light your windowsill gets, i think 4 hours of full sun minimum.
people do grow in windows so it's possible.

a window sill would only work if it gets several hours of direct sunlight every day.  Indirect won't work, they'll get really leggy.

 

If you're planning on growing outside, it's way too late to start peppers.  If you're going to grow them inside you might as well buy the lights now.  You could also grow plants on a really wide window sill that gets 6+ hours of direct sunlight a day.

Get yourself an led quantum board and you can grow year round and make starts anytime!
