    You cannot resize the partition you have booted from in Linux. It is like trying to change a tire of your car while driving. Boot from a Live USB also known as installation USB and select Try Ubuntu without installing. Then use gparted. – user68186 Aug 2 '19 at 14:32

The problem is, that your cannot partition your hard-drive because it is active. Therefore, your hard-disk need to be in an inactive state. I recommend you to install Gparted-live on an external drive, e.g. on a USB stick. It will help you to partition your hard-disk. For more information and instructions, see: https://gparted.org/livecd.php

There are also installation instructions.
