Deleting a git repo of home directory on mac

Every time I log into terminal on my Mac this is what happens
I would like it to have a fresh window each time I open terminal and can't figure out how to delete this repo. When I enter pwd to find the folder path it just says user/tannerlarson but I can't find it... Thinking its the entire home directory not sure what happened.
This is my home folder

Answer

To delete the git repo, you need to remove the whole .git directory, because the system will hide all directories started with ., you can only see it when you ls -la when you see it's there rm -rf .git

WARNING: Make sure you copy the full command, since rm -rf . will remove everything under your home directory.
