there is not enough information in your first post to provide any specific advice.

any chain you will likely buy comes in a length long enough to fit most bicycles. it is very unlikely that the chain you buy will be too short. you will most likely need to remove some links from your chain using a chain breaker. if you want to know how long to leave your chain, read this:

In normal practice a mechanic won't try to figure out how many links a chain is or needs to be. They will size the chain correctly on the bike and it is what it is.
