Your painted turtle could hibernate only if the temperature dropped enough. It sounded to me like your turtle is indoors. Unless your house gets very cold, it's unlikely the turtle would hibernate.

Even a hibernating turtle will withdraw it's leg a little if you tug on it gently.

I hope this information helps you.
