What language should I learn, Mandarin or Cantonese?

Well I’m 100% chinese but I don’t know how to speak anything but 3 phrases. I have the option taking either a mandarin or cantonese class[not both tho]. I have a few chinese friends and they all know cantonese so it would be cool to be able to talk to them in cantonese but my family understands mandarin. Also, I heard that mandarin is good so you can use it to communicate to people from all different areas.

Which should I learn? Pros&Cons? [I definitely can’t choose both. The classes are at the same time so that would be impossible]
