Y usted?


Explanation:
I guess it goes after "Estoy bien".
Ud. is just the abbreviated form of "usted", the polite form of "you" (in singular). It would just be "And you?" in English.
Good luck,

y usted?


Explanation:
"ud" is the abbreviation for "usted" but you may then wonder when to use "usted" instead of "tu". They are both translated as "you".

The difference is that the former is formal while the latter is familiar or informal. The "usted" would be used when addressing an older person, someone you don't know, etc. The "tu" is used when talking to your wife, your friend, your brother/sister, and nowadays your parents.

"what about you?"


Explanation:
"And you" is correct, but perhaps a bit stilted/stuffy. "What about you" flows better.
