    They are both wrong - I don't think you mean "to". Check your spelling.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    These two are natural in British English:

    - I have two siblings.
    - I have got two siblings.

    You will hear "I got two siblings" and it's understandable but it's non-standard.
