Depends how big your budget is, but it strikes me you are limiting yourself if the shortest focal length you end up with 50mm.
I agree with Oldboy that the 50mm f1.8 lens is great vfm and will give you excellent portrait shots. But you will be struggling indoors for anything other than portraits, unless you live in a mansion house with very large rooms. Equally, landscapes are going to be very limited unless taken from a long way away or very high up, like from a light aircraft!
I would advise you go for the 18-55mm lens without question (if the 70-300mm is your only lens at the moment) and if you can streetch to it now, or in the near future, your next purchase should be the 50mm prime.
