Still having a whitespace on top of the header

after coding: header { float: left; margin: 0 0 30px 0; padding: 5px 0 0 0; width: 100%; } I still have a whitespace on top of the header I don't understand what I'm doing wrong

it looks like you are adding a padding-top of 5px.

Remember: top, right, bottom, left (OR top-left, top-right, bottom-right, bottom-left)

I'm having the same problem. The padding-top of 5px isn't the problem. Even when I set it to 0px the white gap is still there. Is there any way to set the background color of my header to reach the top of the page?

In the video they have also 5px padding and putting it at 0 doesn't take away the whitespace only if I remove the float: left; does the space go away

I had written ss after a css rule for the footer I don't know what that did :| after I erased that everything went back to normal
