Do I have to format a new micro sd card?

Do I have to do anything to a new micro sd card, like format it first? Or will it work straight away?

Should work straight away. Usually SD cards come preformatted in FAT32 format.
There could be exceptions to this rule, but I never experienced one.

Update:
Newest Samsung phones use exFAT file system for SD card. It's faster than older FAT32. For Samsung phones it's advisable to format SD card before use to change file system.
