Both forms are correct. Whether and wether are two correct forms. Both words are homophones, which means they sound the same and, what is more, in spelling, they differ by only one letter. Having so much in common superficially, it may be surprising how different they are in meaning. Whether is common conjunction used to express doubt or possibilities. Meanwhile, wether is a noun naming a specific kind of sheep. As we can see, it is good to avoid confusing these two words.
