I'm not sure what kind of disc brake you have, but on the bike that I have with a front disc brake, you can unscrew the right side of the caliper with a hex wrench and pull the right pad out that way due to the pad being too big to fit through the slot.

Sometimes held in with a magnet, but most brake mfg's have their own websites with setting up info and diagrams.

If I remember right mine is a promax (entry-level), so what I did might work for you.
