It's probably the margining from one of the elements. Did you use a css reset file? If not, you can manually remove it yourself by setting the margin to zero on the body element. If that doesnt fix it, check the top margins for the header element and likely h1 elements or whatever you have nested in the header element.

Tip: if you open up chrome dev tools (google chrome) and inspect the elements, as you hover over them you will see an orange border around them, this indicates the margining set on elements.
