Is this a head tube carbon crack? Thanks for your help!

Hi, guys, the frame is 2017 Giant TCR ADV SL, can you tell this is a paint crack or a carbon crack?

If it is carbon, repairable? Worth to repair?

Thanks.

Yes I believe it is a crack
I have a 2020 reign and I just got my third frame back from giant and it’s cracked again in basically in the same spot as seen in your photo
