I have taken out a credit card last month. Ideally, how long should I wait before applying for another credit card, so that it doesn't impact my credit report and score?

It is better not to take out credit cards more than what you can manage easily.
Usually, the financial advisors say that it's better to wait for about 6 months after you take out one credit card. And, try to limit your inquiries to 6 while taking out a credit card. You can take out another credit card after about 3 months if you have excellent credit.
