Hi new to the brew game...
I got advice that adding a extra 200grams of sugar will lift the alcohol level to about 7% is this true?
And if so, should my hydrometer sink more? past the yellow marker???
How do i tell what my percentage is?

Adding sugar can increase the Alcohol content
You need to take sg and fg hydrometer readings and do a calculation to work out the alchohol content.
You'll need to do a bit of reading to figure it all out.http://www.howtobrew.com/
If your soul intention is higher alchohol content then it's probably easier to buy store bought brews.
Good luck with the brewing.
WOW TOO COMPLICATED FOR ME ( THINK I NEED THE HOME BREW FOR DUMMIES BOOK)
