Same length as the chain that is already on the bike.

Chains are sold with a standard number of links, The chain will then need to be shortened to match what you have on the bike. Chains get longer as they wear out, so easiest way to determine the length is to lay it out next to the old chain.

If the bike does not have a chain on it now, than you need to follow the directions of the park tool video

And like someone said you only count the cogs on the rear wheel when determining what chain "speed" you need. Your Schwinn will need the cheaper 5-8 speed chains.
