In all honesty, I don't think it matters. R.E. and I.C.T. (particularly the short course versions) are considered a joke, in the grand scheme of GCSE options.

It's a short course hence why it's half, some people don't count short courses, when I was applying for sixth forms both of mine were discounted

I thought that was where you did Religious Studies but you didn't get a GCSE in it (not even a half)?

As others have said, a 'half GCSE' is a short course. There is the option to take the full course in RS (if your school offers it).

You should write RS: B (Short course). Of course that depends on the level of detail you cover GCSEs in on your CV. They don't appear on mine (neither do my A-levels) so it wouldn't really matter.
