    Even if you said your site pages are not redirected what Google see them as redirected pages that's why it says "301 Moved Permanently", check your websites .htaccess file for any redirect rules and you'll need to remove them if there are any.

    If Google shows their status as "redirected", then they are actually redirecting. If they are not redirecting to any url, remove your site from webmaster tools and add it again or wait for some hours and fetch them again.

    It can be a lot of things. To check, open Inspect element ( press F12 for chrome) toolbar and go to the network tab. Now try loading your site. If you do not see 200 OK in the loading status, something is wrong. If you see it is loading fine, then your site may have been hacked and it might be redirecting to other sites if it encounters google crawlers.. Also try finding out which site it redirects to..

    It can also be related to www or non www redirection. It is impossible to tell / fix without looking at the site.

    I suspect this is the issue. If under your Wordpress settings your site is set to 'www.yoursite.com' and you've submitted yousite.com to Webmaster's tools then you'll see a redirect, the reverse is also true.
