Android build tools from v24 up require Java 8, but you have Java 7 SDK installed. While what you did will work as a quick fix for now, it's best going forward to upgrade so the current versions of build tools will work and you won't be left behind. The easiest way to do that is to open Project Structure (File menu or the icon with a folder and 3 blue squares near the right end of the toolbar). Under SDK Location check "Use embedded JDK)" and click OK. If that doesn't work for you you'll have to manually install the Java 8 SDK and set the JDK location manually. Also do the same with the Default Project Structure under File -> Other Settings in the menu so future projects will be good to go.
