I think it is a load carrying wall , but I wanted to confirm...
It has 10 or 12" beam sitting on top and its going perpendicular and then two smaller boards attached to the beam running on top of headers of the wall
there is no attic to check

Thanks for any advice!

None of the files you tried to post as image files were image files. Please just post links instead. Let the board make them clickable.

You are correct, there's not much to see.
I suspect the wall is bearing for only one reason:

At the left end of the short wall there is a 4x4 post. Posts are not normally installed unless they are supporting a beam above it.
If the wall served no structural purpose, I would not expect to see a post and "anything" would have sufficed other than the post. You would expect to see a single 2x4 at the end for a non-bearing wall.

So it's hard to say. I know I wouldn't remove it without knowing.
