How to reformat smartphone because it says you can safely remove the SD card?

I cannot see the photos. I have tried: I go to settings but I did not find it there, so I tried the backup and restore but it did not solve my problem at all because it made no effect. I think it was caused by: Thursday morning my classmate borrowed my phone it was fully charged, she opened her account on Facebook and when she returned my phone to me, it got 27% only, that is the beginning, I don't know the reason why!

Why is my Android phone having an error, like the Google play service is always appearing after I log-in in the Google account?

It irritates me that the error is always popping. I tried some solution but it didn't work. I can't use my tablet properly because of that. Will reformatting the tablet using computer solve that problem?
