License in the distribution should be there, of course.

But each source file has to have copyright notice as how it is
explained in the license as that will give clear information to people
that software is free software and that there is no warranties.

Stating only "GPLv3" means nothing in itself, and implies that
receiver is supposed to know what it the license. It is unclear for
the end receiver of the software.
