No it is not. The symbol C7 is referring to a C Dominant 7 chord. They are closely related though. Both chords contain the C Major triad containing the notes C-E-G. The Cmaj7 chord has what is called a Major 7 added to the triad. In the case of the C Major scale the natural 7th is B. So the CMaj7 chord is spelled C-E-G-B. The difference between Maj7 chords and Dominant 7 chords is that in Dom 7 chords the 7th that is added to the major triad is one half step lower than the major 7th. This is called the minor 7th. In the case of the C7 chord the Major 7th (B) is flatted (lowered) a half step to become the minor 7th (Bb). Thus the B becomes Bb for the C7 chord. So the CMaj7 chord is spelled C-E-G-Bb.

What is a G7 chord?

It is a G chord with an added 7th: G, B, D and the 7th F#. It is the same in other chords like C7 which would be: C, E, G and the 7th B. Actually the chord symbol G7 indicates a minor 7 by default. G7 would be G, B, D and F natural. If F sharp is used, that would actually be Gmaj7, and the same applies to C7. C7 is C, E, G, and B flat. If B natural is used, that is a Cmaj7.

How can you figure seventh chords is it the seventh note of the root of the chord?

If I understand the question correctly, the answer is yes. For example: the 7th note of the C scale is the 7th of a C chord. If it's lowered a half step, it's called a dominant chord, and if it is not flatted, it's called a major 7th. In the case of the C scale, it's the B. C, E, G, and B is a Cmaj7. C, E, G, and B-flat is a C7.
