No. You need a 700c tyre which is a larger diameter.
The 250 refers to the width of the tyre and you'd imagine you need a 700x25 tube. Apart from the fact that you won't find one, the normal 23mm tubes will do the job very well, even with much wider tyres.
You seem new to the cycling game. Take your wheel and the tube back to the shop you bought it from. He'll give you the right tube. Ask nicely and he'll fit it for you. Even if he charges you for the work, ask to watch so you'll know how to do it yourself. Tube changes aren't difficult but can be a nightmare until you know how.
