In brief: Need BMR

Need to know your baseline basal metabolic rate you can find your calorie need at exercise prescription site - exrx.
Net and once you have your BMR eat either 200-300 calorie less or work out to build your BMR 200-500 more than baseline.

In brief: It depends

The number of calories you need to eat to lose weight depends on your age and gender, how much you weigh now, and how active you are.
If you're concerned about your weight, ask your parents about making an appointment with your doctor or getting a referral to a registered dietitian. Don't try fad diets that cut out a lot of foods or promise that you'll lose a lot of weight quickly.
