"this is a very sad news " was not accepted (even there is "bir" in the sentence). should i report it ? (i am not native english speaker)

No - "news" is uncountable in English, so "a news" does not work.

Writing "piece of news" would work and would get round the issue of "news" being uncountable in English.

For me it does not work. I reported it.
