  I had created MLAG on core switches, Now on this topology diagram can you clarify me in which switch we have to apply STP ?

In fact you are using MLAG towards the Edge-Switches you don`t need to config STP, because it is also not recommended to use STP within a MLAG infrastructure. You can use STP (or any Loop-Protection) locally on your Edge-Switches to prevent loops.

That means we have to apply STP on edge switch of all ports. Am i right.

Why do you want to add STP to this design? MLAG takes care of the loops between core and edge. The only reason to apply STP here would be edge port loop protection. So you can enable edge port mode with BPDU restrict on the edge ports.

Actually, i got a message on Edge x440 switch.

13:45:11.96 <Warn:IPMC.Warning> Our own packet received. Mac address of the received packet is [0:4:96:35:75:d4],there could be physical loop in the network

This error came on my switch what this statement indicates? 
As we had checked on that switch there is normal utilization rate.

To protect edge port from loop use this command:

configure stpd s0 ports edge-safeguard enable port_list bpdu-restrict recovery-timeout 300

Or use ELRP on the edge ports ..
