Hi, the picture was taken in a conservatory, somtimes the pop up flash came on, try other settings result was the same, the WB was set AWD should i have set it to a different mode like WB fluorecent light daylight colour

Your WB should have been set to whatever the prevailing light was. If the prevailing light was mostly natural, EG: sunny or cloudy, set WB to daylight or cloudy. If lit mostly by flash, set it to flash. If the lighting is from mixed sources it's a bit more difficult to set the WB correctly without a photographers grey card or an Expodisk or similar. If you have one, use it. If not, best shoot RAW and correct the WB in post-processing.

Personally, I always adjust the white balance as part of the post processing procedure, and I always shoot JPG. As somebody once said - life is too short to shoot RAW!!
Lovely shot by the way!

What a lovely scene. I do like it.
As the others said you should change the WB to eliminate the blue tones.

I don't want to argue with you but you will loose a lot of colour tones when you use JPG. The JPG handles only 8bits/channel while the RAW can handle 12bits/channel.
