GFCI and dual switch

hello, i have 2 switches in my bathroom , one for the fan and one for wall light. i want to replace them with a dual switch and the gfci. i know how to hook each one seperatly but not 100% about putting them together. there are 2 wires in the box. 1st wire- black and white, black is the power entry
2nd wire- red, black and white, red is the fan and black is the light. what is the correct way to hook it up??? thanks!!

The correct way is not to do it.

If this is the United States then you cannot do this unless the circuit is 20 amps and serves nothing else but this bathroom.
