I change x to 0 in y and get C1 = 2 Then I find derivative of y, do the same thing y'(0) = 0 Then I found C2. I put values of C1,C2 in y and that's the answer?

So, you are right - just to substitute $\displaystyle C_1$ and $\displaystyle C_2$ with 2 and 1 respectively: $\displaystyle y=(2+x)e^{-0.5x}$
