Correct spelling, explanation: this form is the correct one, because the base form is carry. When suffix -ing is added we do not skip the letter y, so the outcome is carrying. Therefore
carring is a misspelling, because there is no need to omit y. Carrying is the correct form.
Definition of carrying:
verb, present participle form of carry, to bear sth; to hold sth in order to put it in a different place
– What is your daughter carrying? – Oh, it’s a puppy we bought for her.
You shouldn’t be carrying heavy things while pregnant.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: this spelling is incorrect because the base verb is carry, so it ends with y. There is no reason to leave it out when adding a suffix -ing. Therefore
carring is wrong and the correct form is carrying, because carry plus -ing is carrying.
