Boot into Ubuntu and copy all your data that you need/want. After that you can download Windows 7 and then burn it to a disc, and install it.

If you don't have/know your product key: Download a keyfinder from here, then write down your Windows 7 product key.

My recommendation would be to boot Ubuntu, save everything that you need (documents etc) from the windows drive and then reinstall Windows 7 to avoid any problems.
