Do i need to file my unfiled taxes first before i file my 2017?

No, each return is filed independently of the other returns, other than a few carryovers.  So, if you have not filed 2016, although you will want to do that as soon as possible, especially if you owe taxes, you can still file your 2017 return.  You will just need to enter $0 for your AGI for 2016 if no return was filed for 16.
