Should I go directly into directx or go into SDL first?

I you want to try DirectX then go ahead and give it a try; if you find it too difficult you can always put it aside for a while and work with SDL instead. If you'd like to make a more informed decision you could look for some tutorials and code samples using each option and then pick the one you feel more comfortable with.
Yes, you can use SDL with DirectX. It's a little less common than using it with OpenGL, but isn't overly difficult, and you should be able to find some tutorials where others have done so.
Hope that helps!
