I have files on my external hard drive and when trying to open it up, it asks me to format the drive, but also says I could lose my files, what should I do

Perhaps the drive hasn't been formatted yet - new ones sometimes are preformatted, but other times aren't. Assuming your files aren't on it, format the drive.
