Hi Vinci,
It's nice that you already know the guitar. You may go with learning any music, whether it's western or Indian or Carnatic. However, managing singing Carnatic music while playing the guitar could be difficult because the genres of music have a lot of variation in their style. However, both western and Indian music will go well. Indian music can help you do fusion and also sing Bollywood songs very comfortably as it creates the base. You may go for western music at a later stage depending on your passion for singing pure western songs.

It really depends on your interest. If you wanna know about music in depth, learn any form of classical music (Carnatic, Hindustani, western). You gotta be super committed and it is a lengthy process. If you wanna learn vocals just to perform movie songs/ light songs with your guitar, then light music...
