Firstly make sure, does WCF REST service really required for inserting a new record in your application architecture. Below are some good references to start with WCF REST services.

To insert your data using WCF REST service, you will require POST method. Below link will provide you plenty of CodeProject articles on this.

Once your POST method gets data in the form of XML/JSON then you can insert it into Database using Ado.Net/Entity Framework. Below article has an example of "WCF REST service with Entity Framework".
