Hi,
    Few comments that might help you in getting right structure.

1. Your cell parameters are very small. You need to take bigger cell and
repeat the calculations.

take at least  2 x 2 x 3  cell. (or better choice is 3 x 3 x 4)

2. Your cutoff value is less. Try increase to 280 Ry or above. or If you
are not sure about cut off value, pl. do set of single point calculations
by varying density cutoff. Check for energy convergence.


Wishes,
Sandeep
