I recommend you read Google’s advice on the format for a sitemap: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/183668?hl=en

The robots.txt file starts off with “404” as well.

I’m assuming that’s 404 as in Not Found

Been messing with your htaccess file lately?

Can you please do let me know how you are adding XML sitemap? I mean through plugin or manually.

Hi thanks for your help. Am adding it via Yoast seo plugin
