Thank you very much from your response.
but I didn't select micelle headgroups and then terminal carbon atom but also I selected COM of micelle and for example head group of micelle! The calulation of radius of micelle by radius of gyration give that is near 2.3-2.4 nm but g_dist ...!!!
Where is my mistake?
I select groups in index file correctly.
Please help me.
Thank you again.

Keep in mind what g_dist is measuring, center-of-mass distances. If you select the micelle headgroups and then terminal carbon atoms, the positions will be almost coincident, as your result suggests. Other groups that are giving a nearly-zero distance are likely coincident in the same manner.
