I want to create a standard persistent disk, format and mount it on multiple VM instances.
There are two Ansible tasks that create persistent disks:
gcp_compute_disk. Which should I use?

I would say that you should use
gcp_compute_disk, based simply on the fact that it actually exists. A quick search does not show that the other is part of Ansible, nor was I able to find a third party module with that name; perhaps it is a local module provided internally at your company?
It seems you were actually talking about a module with a different name,
gce_pd. That module appears to have been someone's personal project, albeit someone at Google.
gcp_compute_disk is Google's official contribution to Ansible, so I still recommend you use that one.
