Yes, of course. Part of doing research about a subject is knowing what have already been researched about that subject.

After all, your research should make a contribution to the existing knowledge about a subject. How will you know if you are contributing to something, if you don't know the state of the art of that something? So, you must refer to previous researchers, that's what citations are, on a basic level.

Another thing you should pay attention to is about how to format your citations when you write a paper. If you already have a journal in mind, for example, see what are the format requirements for submissions to that journal, for example.
