Python Write Better Python Cleaner Code Function and Class Whitespace

"Your file has 1 error(s) on line(s) 11: blank line contains whitespace."

On line 11 it complains that my blank line contains whitespace (Which I thought all blanks did). But if I get rid of that blank line then it also complains and says that it expected a blank line?

starter.py
def first_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)


def second_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)


class MyClass:
    args = [1, 2, 3]

    def class_func(self):
        return self.args
