I bought a domain, after building my app I'm using Ahref's to audit my website. I notice that many backlinks are appearing with a good domain authority pointing not to my root domain but to a subdomain.

I'm thinking of creating the subdomain and redirecting it with status code 301 to my root domain. Is this the best approach or should I make this subdomain as the same of the domain root? Basically having 2 websites?
