You have more options:
- The simplest is to use your PCB manufacturer's online calculator (often they have some - you select the stackup you would like to use and you can calculate the impedance and track geometry there) e.g. something like this https://cart.jlcpcb.com/impedanceCalculation
- or ask your PCB manufacturer to send you their standard stackup, impedances and all dimensions (you need to have direct contact in your PCB factory)
- or you can try to design your own stackup, approximately calculate the numbers in Saturn and then ask PCB manufacturer to confirm or adjust these numbers (not easy to do, can be expensive and can take a lot of time)

In your PCB, use the numbers from PCB manufacturer.
