To create a new repository, simply run 'hg init' in your project directory.
An empty hgrc is fine. But you can add stuff like the following
(described in doc/hgrc.5.txt):

$ cat .hg/hgrc
name = Mercurial
description = Scalable distributed version control system
author = mpm
allowgz = true
allowbz2 = true
allowzip = true

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
