2x² + y² = 3r
2y = x + 4 - 6r

Ive used y = 0.5x + 2 - 3r, to sub back into the first equation, and after expanding and simplifying, I got:

9x² + 8x = 12 - 36r² +24r

Then I solved these equations,

9x² + 8x = 0 (x = -08889, 0)
12 - 36r² +24r = 0 (r = 1 , -0.33333)

now what do I do?

Ive never seen any question like this in C1.

If you have three variables, you need three bits of information. You have two (i.e. two separate equations), is there no other information given, such as 'x, y and r are integers'? Surely this isn't C1 standard?

I don't think you're going to get unique solutions to those equations (in fact there might not be any solutions). The only way i can see to solve it is let r=1 and solve for x and y.
