New Gimp File always green

Hello everybody!
First of all - I am new to this forum and want to introduce myself short: I'm 18 years old und making atm my A-Level. I'm coming from Fürth/Germany..

Now coming to my subject/problem: Since about 3 Weeks (I made about 3 Gimp projects in this time), every new project isn't transparent anymore, it's green. I know how to manually make it transparent, but how can I change my settings, that it is doing automatically every new project with transparent background?

I added a screenshot for helping you to understand my problem.

Thanks for your time Henrik

The File -> New dialogue is set to use the background colour and your background colour is green. There are options for different presets. see: https://docs.gimp.org/2.10/de/gimp-file-new.html

or

Reset the foreground/background to the default black/white with the icon under the swatch, before making a new canvas.
