Hi there,
Thanks for contacting WPML support, I will be glad to help you.

Since you didn't move or copy your site to a new URL, it could be the same issue mentioned in the following errata page: so please select "I moved the site to this new URL".

Also, please make sure that you're using the latest version of the WPML plugins (Kindly create a full database and website backup before updating any of your plugins).

Thank you for your answer, I want to ask if this option will affect the site's ranking

No, it won't affect the site's ranking.

Those options just affect the advanced translation editor and the way it handles the translation features. Please check the following doc for more details:
