New file marked as 'Copied'

I created a new file based on a existed file in my repository.  I committed the file but Stash marked as 'Copied' and not as 'Added'.

Why stash did that?

Git tracks file content, not files, so in your case Git detected that the new file was very much the same as the original file and recognized it as copied. This should not affect anything.

Is there any possibility to mark the file as created, to have better diffs?

No, it is all controlled by git.
