@idara245 You should check if your tenant supports the encrypted (unified) labels in SharePoint Online. By default the option for encrypted labels is disabled. You can enable the option via Security Center, or if the option is not visible there check the status via PowerShell. Check this help post https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/compliance/sensitivity-labels-sharepoint-onedrive-fil.... After you enabled the option you should give the tenant 24 hours.
