I personally would buy a whole new set. For someone starting out I would recommend .009 - .042 or .009 to .046. Hope that helps.
Epiphones come with .10-.46 strings as standard, if you want to keep the same tension.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

man if your starting out, then you should know, guitars dont require a certain guage string, so you can just go out an buy any guage you want, but it is best to just get a whole new pack, instead of just replacing one string.
please look at your bridge before you restring. its nearly always the bridges fault when the E or A breaks.
Why you reading this?

If you're using the same strings you got with your guitar, definitely replace them. Epiphone put crappy Chinese strings on all their guitars, you're gonna want to get yourself a nice set of American-made strings.
I'd recommend putting a 0.010 set on a Les Paul, it'll just give you a richer tone and some more sustain.

By the way, when changing string gauges, sometimes a slight truss rod adjustment is necessary. Moving from 0.009 to 0.010 isn't a drastic change so it probably won't be needed, but if you get any fret buzz I would recommend taking the guitar to get adjusted.
