Dear sir/mam,

Hi

  1. Per base sequence content
  2. Per sequence GC content
  3. Sequence Length Distribution
  4. Sequence Duplication Levels
  5. Overrepresented sequences
  6. Kmer Content

yes in one of the fastq file it had overrepresented sequence of GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

other fastq file is good.

i have trim the data using Trimmomatic and Trim Galore tool (defaults settings) in galaxy and did fastqc but still QC images shows the same.

please need help.

Is this NextSeq or MiniSeq data?

That explains polyG stretches, due to the two-colour chemistry. G means absence of signal. Probably best to trim polyG tails. For more information, see this post on qcfail

You can do a simple check for per base quality result from FastQC. If there is quality drop, you can do trimming based on quality and then check the fastQC of the trimmed data.
