This guide shows how to replace the SSD in the Dell XPS 13. If your old SSD still works, be sure to create a full backup or clone the drive before you begin. You can use this guide either to upgrade to a higher-capacity drive, or to replace a faulty drive. If you install a blank SSD, you’ll need to reinstall Windows (or the OS of your choice) when you’re done with the repair.

I’m kinda new on pc upgrading. So once I install a new m.2 I’ll need to install a new window 10 right

Yes, you have to install windows again. or you can clone your existing ssd onto the new one using some adapters easily found online

You will have to reinstall unless you are buying a samsung m.2 which comes with a disk duplicator utility. The xps 13 cames with a samsung early life evo disk (128GB) and transferring from 1 evo to another is very easy with the app. I believe its the same with every disk though I havent tried the latter.
