Is it because my ammonia got too high? Should I do a water change?

So I went to the beach yesterday and I brought some water and sand (the beach was deserted its sort of a rock pool area) and I did a small 10% water change with that water and added some mossy seaweed
The readings this morning are
Ammonia >8ppm
Nitrite .25ppm
Nitrate 5ppm

I don't know if it's necessary, but maybe do a small one tomorrow if it is still that high.
