I need to change my HDD & it is very urgent. But I can't decide whether I should buy Cavier Black or Cavier Blue.
Blue costs about 103 US$ & Black costs 159$.(where I live)
And I need a casing too.
what should I do.

If you are just using the drive in an external casing connected via usb, the blue drive should be fine. I believe it does have a 3 year warranty as opposed to 5 year warranty on the black series drive though.

the black will most probably last longer, and is probably faster

The black drive, they are very reliable, it's fast for a 7200RPM mechanical drive too.

If it's just for storage and not an OS, get a Caviar Green, they are good too.

I will not use it in an enclosure. I will use it as my boot drive.
