A tab could be a different number of columns depending on the environment(text editor), but a space is always one column. For readability and portability purposes, it is important to use either of them consistently.

How to fix this

Use either spaces or tabs for indentation not both. In case you are using spaces, specified the number of space to be use per indentation level.
