margin push down on the header after adding h3 in the section tag for contact page

basically after adding the h3 tag in the first section tag; the h3 tag is filling up the whole block and apply it margin atop of the header; so now it pushing the whole site down. this only happen if your view the code through workspace. If i view the site from my desktop it perfect

any suggest?
