It might be N. hirsuta, but it's hard to tell from the pics. N. hirsuta is known for being fairly hairy along the edge if the leaves and pitcher tendrils, so you may want to examine it for that trait. It may also be a N. sanguinea, but without better pics I can't be sure.

It's easier to tell by looking at the outside edges of the leaf. I'm at work right now so I can't take a pic of mine to show you, but the hair on the outside edge of N. hirsuta leaves is very noticeable.
