1099r distribution from pensions annuities was entered as W2 for 2017. should I amend the 2017 return?

Last year I entered a 1099R as a W2. The amount is taxable for both instances.

Should I amend the 2017 return or just do it right going forward?

You can amend your return, or you can wait for the IRS to realize that what you filed doesn't match their records.  They will propose an adjustment to your return and notify you by mail.  If you wait for the IRS and you owe additional tax, the meter is running on interest and penalties.  So I would file an amended return.  For information on how to amend your 2017 return, see the following FAQ:
