my anki deck translates:
Я пойду прямо сейчас. I'll go right now

does it mean I'll go at this exact moment or I'm about to go to the right, or can it mean both depending on context?
native: (ar-MA) (nl)
very comfortable: (en-US)
somewhat comfortable: (de) (es) (af)
forgetting: (fr) (ar-arb)
touristy level: (ro) (sv)(ber)(pl)
someday hopefully: (ja) (sq) (cs) (tr) and many others

It is not the direction "right" (as in right/left). It means I'll go right away (= I'll go straight away), I'll go at this moment in time. Nothing about turning to the right.

Я = I
пойду = will go; am going
прямо сейчас = straight away, right now
