Indentation Error

Hello, i am new to coding. I started doing the first project on “Python 3”, and i couldn’t code my initial of the name.The link to the project is right here: " https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-python-3/projects/python-block-letters "
I coded

#My name is Gustavo Carvalho
#I like icecream
     print("  GGG  ")
     print(" G   G ")
     print(" G     ")
     print(" GGGGG ")
     print(" G   G ")
     print(" G   G ")
     print(" GGG  ")

Meanwhile, appears a error on my code.
" File “initials.py”, line 3
print(" GGG ")
^
IndentationError: unexpected indent "
Any help? Thanks!

Please check the following FAQ for some guidance on formatting code for the forums and other information that helps anyone attempting to answer a query.

Indentation is Python is how code is grouped together and is a syntax requirement rather than a suggestion. Do you have some empty whitespace before that print function on line 3?

Something like the following would throw an error due to the indentation of the fourth line-

print("start")
#My name is Gustavo Carvalho
#I like icecream
    print(" GGG “)


This is the problem, i think everything is fine

All those indents before your print statements would be a cause for errors, you’d want to bring them back to the left hand side. Perhaps I wasn’t clear enough but you can’t simply add indents to the code at random spots. It follows certain syntax and then requires an indent such as if statements and class definitions.
