If you are registered in GST then at the time of purchase you must have claimed ITC , hence ITC is to Reverse when you are returning back to supplier.
As per Section 32 of CGST Act if you are not registered , you cannot claim ITC & reverse .ITC . (cannot collect & charge GST )
Note : As per Section 34. the supplier can issue credit or Debit in GST , so in case of Returning goods to supplier ask your supplier to Issue credit Note for the same .
(then even if you are unregistered , the supplier shall Reduce his output tax liability by issuing credit note )
