    There are certainly some weird characters (e.g. BOM) or some whitespace before the XML preamble(<?xml ...?>) check your colors.xml and type below code and add your color codes. I was also facing same issue I followed same steps...

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        <color name="colorPrimary">#5e5b5b</color>
        <color name="colorPrimaryDark">#48464b</color>
        <color name="colorAccent">#D81B60</color>
