I would try to learn them all, but start with the simpler ones.

Hopefully you have noticed that all the major scales follow the same pattern of whole steps and half steps.  You ought to be able to hear that they are all in a way the same.  They differ in their starting points (the tonic or name of the scale). 

The minor scales have their own pattern too.

And there is a simple relationship between the major and minor scales.

Obviously you can play them all.
Besides all major and minor scales you can also work on chromatic scales. All in first position if you like. :-)

See all of your scales below in the circle of fifths:
