I really do not have a lot to put to this post because i do not know where to start.I just would like to know which direction this planet is moving in our beloved solar system.
Very interesting, with that being said do you think or is it plausible that the universe has already expanded and that the universe, the galaxies and everything else is just spinning /rotating/revolving,just spinning/rotating/revolving around.

Which direction in relation to what? The entire universe is a mobile entity and nothibg within in it is static, or fixed position in space
The Earth moves in the solar system, the solar system moves within the galaxy, the galaxy moves within the cosmic background, which itself is moving.
Without a point of reference you cannot determine a direction in which the earth is traveling in the cosmic background.
You can only say if it is moving towards/away from some other entity in space, be it a system or single heavenly body.

Probably already been said, but, there is no NSEW in space. That is entirely dictated by our own planet's magnetic poles.
