The formula you need is to simply divide by 7 (=A2/7) and then decrease the decimal.   The only caveat is that it will round up to the next week only if the (hidden) decimal is .5 or higher otherwise it will round down, i.e. 17 days would be 2 weeks instead of 3.  In order to always round up to the next week you just need to use the ROUNDUP function like so:
The zero just tells the function to always round up to the next integer.

MROUND will round to nearest factor rather than rounding up. Another option for rounding up is CEILING function:
