Malware found in system apps on my Gionee Elife S5.5

My phone was showing ads and downloading apps on its own. So, I downloaded "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware" from Google PlayStore and I scanned my phone.

I'm getting the following malwares :

1. Android/Trojan.Syringe

2. Android/Trojan.Downloader.Le

3. Android/Trojan.Downloader.Le

4. Android/Trojan.Syringe

5. Android/PUP.Adware.Youmi.a

"Malwarebytes Anti-Malware" is giving me option to :
1. Add to Whitelist
2. Skip
3. Delete

I don't know if I should delete them or not as they are system apps.

Model number : GIONEE S5.5
Android Version : 4.4.10
