I want to replace two paragraph endings punctuation marks by one, because I want to replace white lines. How do I do that?

I think Andreas might have meant replace
to reduce all the doubles with a single rather than to remove all paragraph marks.

No: as usual, you have it wrong; he meant what he wrote. The user wants to remove what she calls "white lines" - actually empty paragraphs. The circumflex character anchors the pattern to the beginning of a paragraph and the dollar sign to the end of a paragraph. So ^$ matches an empty paragraph.
