No, no, "apt-get source" gives you the sources for building the .deb-package. 
Even if you get your headerfile, the system will not find it. On debian 
systems, header files are typically in packages ending with "-dev". 

What you might want to try ist 
apt-get install libmysqlclient10-dev
apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev

I think the first one is right, but I haven't checked it.
