I'll be really glad if someone could help me solve my plumbing problem.The drain of my shower is leaking or something, I am thinking of replacing the drain and P trap as suggested here

Do you think it's the right thing to do?

If that is what is leaking, yes. But you need to make sure what is leaking first. If it is a shower only, the usual cause is the rubber compression washer/nut just needs to be tightened or replaced. There is usually a nut that screws in from the top and compresses the rubber o-ring tightly around the pipe. Over time that may loosen. It does not look like a nut, but may only have a couple of bumps on it. Tapping those bumps in a clockwise direction should tighten it.
