They make special tool however you can simply use a large diameter socket inside the piston and a c-clamp. Make sure the e brake is off first though. Afterward pump the brakes to get a solid pedal before driving.

If it doesnt compress with a C-clamp and the old brake pad, then it needs to be screwed back in. If it's a screw type then there will be some sort of indentions on it to allow a tool to grab and spin it.
