To select an option, press the power button and for moving up/down in the menu, use the volume keys.

You can do a full wipe by entering recovery mode. This can be done 2 ways. If your phone is switched off, press and hold power button and volume up together, until MI logo appears and then let go. 2nd method is with the phone powered up. Go into Updater app. Press the 3 dots icon at the top right. Select "Reboot to recovery mode".
Once in recovery mode "Wipe and Reset" should be an option after selecting language, with a further option of "Wipe all Data". If you proceed with this, it will take a while to complete so be patient. Afterwards, your phone should be clean of any apps causing ads.
Great Performance. Not Bad At All. This is great phone with cheap price. Love My Redmi Note 2

I dowloaded the global rom from the miui site using my PC transfered it to my redmi note 2 and upgraded from it the first time to upgrade from the seller's rom (miui 6 to 7) then i upgraded again through the system updater. In both instance, the ads were there when charging the phone. The seller's rom was worse since the ads appear not only during charging time.

It's not uncommon. By default, Xiaomi doesn't have Play Store so a lot of sellers that you import from, will install it for buyers. Depending on the seller, it might include unwanted ad apps as well. Best to do a full wipe and then install global ROM or else a better custom ROM so that none of the pre installed apps get carried across.
