What is your problem?
i.e. what is the expected behavior of your program (and what is the observed one?)?

The basic problem you are probably having is that you aren't checking every character: a For loop automatically increments the variable, so when you don't find a match you skip a character automatically. Removing your whole Else clause will probably fix that, but that is a poor way to do things.

I would rename your variables: chk becomes lastChar and I would set it to a silly value to start with.
I would then use a For Each loop to extract each character in turn:
Dim str As String = "hello paul"
Dim lastChar As Char = ControlChars.Lf
For Each thisChar As Char In str
    If thisChar = lastChar Then
        'Show the repeat
    End If
    lastChar = thisChar
