From the options that appear, click Add a new payment method. Add all of your new payment method’s credentials, then switch to that new payment method. If you wish, you can remove your Paypal account afterward.

If you’re going to delete your Discord account, and you have PayPal connected to it, you don’t have to disconnect first. Deleting your account will sever all ties between Discord and other apps/accounts you have.

If you don’t want to cancel your Nitro subscription, you will have to add a new payment method to avoid losing it.
