Is it grammatically correct?
What are you doing in the last days?

What are you doing in the last few days?

You are kind of close, but this needs some work.
You could say:
What are you doing in the next couple of days?
What have you been doing in the last few days?
What are you doing today and tomorrow?

"The last days" is used to refer to the end of the existence of something like a person's life or a company going out of business.
What you mean is "the last few days" in which case you should use the present perfect "what have you been doing" not the present "what are you doing."
So it should be "what have you been doing the last few days?" "Recently" is also good instead of "the last few days."

not unless you mean the end of the world by "the last days". Well, actually, it would be "grammatically" correct but not meaningful as you probably mean. You can say those words in that sentence, but they do not refer to recent days, only some "last days" of something.The common interpretation of last days is, literally, the last days that ever will be.
If you mean the recent past, you can say it in several ways, with "the past few days" being a very common way to express the idea. you could even say the "last few days" to put the time frame in the recent past. that word "few" makes a huge difference to meaning. The idea would be something like "the last few days since I last saw you".

It should be...
What were you doing in the last days?
What have you been doing in the last days?
Unless you are referring to the end of the world or of their life as 'the last days'
Then it would be correct.
