Add Second SSD

HP Recommended
OMEN 25L GT12-1167c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently purchased the OMEN 25L GT12-1167c and am trying to figure out how to add an additional m.2 SSD.  I am new to all of this.  Under the expansion slots for the motherboard it shows the below.

 
-One PCI Express 4.0 x16 lanes
-One PCI Express 3.0 x1 lanes
-One M.2 socket 1, key A
-Two M.2 socket 3, key M (one for SSD card PCIe x4 Gen 3)
 

Is this saying that I only have one slot for an M.2 SSD is this an additional socket to plug in a second one? If able to install a second one can somewhere show me where. I can't find any information on the motherboard and when looking at it I can't find another slot.

The specs says it has 2 slots for M.2 SSD and one already is occupited with WD_BLACK 512 GB PCIe NVMe TLC SSD. You can use the second one for more space.Using same brand with larger capacity is very safe. You can also setup RAID 0 on your machine).
