Now I have a few more questions:
  • is only to Windows icons are white or also some icons of the programs?
  • is some of the icons are white in the taskbar, start menu, in the taskbar hidden area?
  • have you used some registry cleaner, if yes, then which one?
  • have you installed Windows 10 Manager (from yamicsoft.com)?
Quite likely causes are damaged register or icon cache.
The first can be improved, if you have a backup copy of the registry, the second, if you can improve icon cache (rebuild icon cache). It would be good to use the Windows 10 Manager.

Okay.  I am a bit confused now.

...I had replaced the  windows 10 icons with other icons like 95 98 icons which I have now my desktop...

Which icons did you replace the Windows 10 icons with?  Where did you get these icons?  Could provide a link from where you got these icons?  How, specifically, did you replace the icons?  Could you give a better description of how you went about replacing the icons?

 

...how do I get my original Default Windows 10 icons back...

I can't answer that question until you answer those questions above.

 

...should you always use the original icons ?

Not necessarily.  Some people like to make their desktop look different and changing their desktop icons is one way to do so.

 

BTW, could you please take your time use some punctuation?  You aren't making it easy for me to help you.

sportman12, when I asked you where you got those icons from I wanted the URL of the site.  Also, "Download zip" is hardly a description.  If you really want help, you can do better than that.  Having to draw it out of you is like pulling teeth.
