Hi Ruhiyya,

'Make for' suggests 'go in the direction of somewhere as in: We left home early this morning and are making for the city.

'Go for' indicates that you use an opportunity to do something as in: I saw a really good job advertised in the paper and have decided to go for it and sent off my application.

'Right' is the correct option there.

'right now' is a set expression which is equivalent to 'at this moment'.
