When someone asks you, "Which do you prefer?", then there are always two or more than two options for your preference (one alternative over another or others). Then the answer would be like this: 

For example:
Which do you prefer coffee or tea?

I prefer coffee. 
I prefer tea.

Perhaps you can say, "I prefer both." or "I prefer either". In this case this answer is not wrong, but if you look at the question clearly, "Which do you prefer...?" means what do you like the most between the two. So here you have to choose one, which will be your preference because the person who asks your choice.

If you don't like both of two, you can say, " I don't prefer either." or "I prefer neither."  

I prefer neither. 
I don't prefer either.
