You do not need to format the ssd that comes with the palo alto. Once you power down the device and then reinstall the ssd in another pa device, it automatically reformats the ssd.
If you want to reset to factory default, you can restart the machine, press "m" and choose PAN-OS(Maint) to go to maintenance mode, choose factory reset.
