Why my printer carriage moves just to one direction?

It's because your endstop is on the right, the x carriage can only go in the positive direction from the end stop. When moving to the left is moving from 0mm to -200mm for example. I'm not sure if the travel limits can take negative values
#define X_MAX_POS 0
#define X_MIN_POS -200

You could move the end stop to the left of the printer and set xhome dir to -1.

Test your endstop by sending m114/m119 command and see if it's triggered, then try pressing the endstop switches and send the command again to see if there's any changes in the results returned

If marlin returned the endstops triggered/open when both being pressed and released, check your wiring, for example for mine, on ramps 1.4, I wired it to positive and signal, but it returned as static, so when the wire from positive shifted to negative, the results returned are correct when manually testing it with the command above
