‘Fetch as Google’ in Webmaster tool says ‘Redirected’

Google webmaster tool shows me this for my website. https://ibb.co/cnCOfk

This is a WP website, and my guess is it’s because the redirection from non-www to www is not happening. Google fetches with www and then my website gets redirect too non-www domain. How do I fix this problem?

I found online that I can solve this with .htaccess. Now, I added last 2 lines (above IfModle ends). Currently, my .htaccess looks like this.

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www. [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]
# END WordPress

Once I add this, website goes in infinite loop of “www.cookinghealthy.co” to “cookinghealthy.co” to “www.cookinghealthy.co” and so on.

How do I solve this problem? Thank you in advance.
