    Welcome to the forum.

    The first is incorrect. It involves the famous "double negative" - "Nothing" and "can't". The second is correct.

    Please look at my corrections above in red. There was no need for a question mark at the end. You didn't ask a question. You made a statement - "I have a doubt ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
