If you have a Verizon model then unlikely
If you have a unlocked one, go to Developer Settings and enable oem unlocking and usb debugging, reboot to fastboot then type: fastboot oem unlock. It will wipe your data so make a backup first.

Thanks for your answer

I look into bootloader yesterday.
It says
Product/Variant: Sailfish-US-PVT
Boot Slot : b
console: Disabled
Secure Boot: Production
Device is LOCKED

I can use any network on this phone
How about this info, is it Rootable?

It seems like you have a Verzion model, go to About Device, press Build Number 7 times and go back, you will now have a Developer Settings in the list. Press it and look for Allow OEM Unlock. If it grey out then unfortunately, your Pixel might not be unlockable. If its not, press it and reboot to fastboot. Open ADB and type: fastboot oem unlock . A unlock screen will appear and it will warn you about unlock the bootloader will wipe your data. Press unlock if you have made a backup of your data ( you can continue without making a backup ) or reboot back to android and make a backup if you want to keep your data ( any changes will be reverted ). After that, your device is unlocked and you could install twrp on it. Search google for how to install twrp on pixel since the way to install twrp on pixel is different than other devices.

Wait a second, have you ever factory reset the phone since the day you bought it?
