How can I add margin to background bitmap on Android

So I would like to create a checkered effect with my bitmap. So I am using this very small pixel grey color png. I need to add a margin or padding before it’s repeated but I’m unsure how to do this. Any help will be welcome as I have just started learning Android development.

What it’s doing right now is repeating the entire image, filling the window with one color.

In my Activity Main XML I’m including the above XML
