Welcome to our forum. The 18-55 is a pretty good lens. You could use it to determine your preferred focal length and order a prime afterwards.

I agree w Olaf.  The 18-55 is an EXCELLENT lens that will allow you to explore what you like to shoot, and what you wish to accomplish going forward.  Fuji has many excellent lenses available - and several "Red Badge" lenses that are pricier.  I'd work with the 18-55 for a while as you determine what you like to do, and in what lighting you need/like to work in.  The lighting issue will determine if you need the faster aperture lenses or not.

Best of luck and let us know as you progress.

If you’re still pondering, I went through this last year 🙂.  I went with the 23mm f2.  I’ve owned a 35mm (50mm equivalent) before and really liked it but you often don’t have the space to back up. 
If you’re not sure which prime, I think most would say that’s a good start. 
FWIW, my reasoning for a prime was size basically as I have an X-30.  (Plus just hey, new lens 😂)
