the tire size is molded into the side wall of the tire. It will look something like: 26 x 2.125 or 700 x 35c
If the bike does not get a lot of use, you will notice after a few weeks that the tires are soft, this is because butyl rubber tire seep air, just like you car tires do over time. You may have picked up thorn or multiple thorns or glass and this could be imbedded in the tire. The tubes manufacturers spec on new bikes are notoriously thin and very prone to flats. Try replacing your tubes with Thorn Resistant tubes or tubes that have tire sealant in them like Slime Tubes (brand name). Remember to rub your fingers on the inside of the tire before installing a new tube to make sure you have removed the offending thorn, or else you are going to have another flat, sure as shootin'.
