So im trying to get into pvp and im praticing using my directional scanner to find ships.
I often find ships on my scanner and i know the direction of that ship down to 5 degree radius however...
There is nothing in that direction that i can warp to...
Its like that ship that im trying to get to is somewhere in an empty space.
So i wonder, what are these ships doing and how do i get to them?

There are a couple things that I can think of immediately that can be the cause of this. I'm sure there are others that are not coming to mind as well.

1. The person is at an escalation site.
2. The person has finished an anomaly or signature site.

If you are hunting, you may wish to start learning how to use combat scan probes.
