Default spokes

ok, so i have heard, also it says in my installation manual, to use wheels with 12 to 14 ga. spokes. My question then (now you can tell I am really new to even repairing bikes) but what ga. normally comes on a 26" mountain bike? If it matters, which it probably does, my bike in question right now is a roadmaster mntn sport sx. Should I just run my rear wheel down to my local bike shop and ask them the ga and to regauge to a 12?
