It is entirely up to you; code whatever information you want.

Note that 1D barcode is simpler (lines) but contains less information. 2D barcode, on the other hand, takes less place and contains much more information. Keep in mind that, if you choose 2D barcode, you have to purchase barcode scanners that are capable of reading such a code. 1D scanners can NOT read 2D barcode (while 2D reads 1D).

To consider:

Is the barcode only used internally by your own company? Then you could use whatever you like. The barcode type then would depend on How much data you want to encode, and if you need only numbers or numbers and letters in the barcode.

Or is it really a barcode for a "product" that has to work for example with scanners at a point of sale? Then you would have to use EAN13 and use a Global Trade Item Number

There are some standards, for example the EAN13 for Products, or EAN128 for Serial Shipping Container Codes (SSCC), etc....

I would definitely use the preferred "standard" barcode for the specific case whenever possible.
