I'm sort of new to this whole process and a lof of my homework for diff eq's asks for us to use technology to plot some of the solutions.
We just started last week on system of diff eq's and I wanted to learn how to do this with MATLAB. Be easy on me as I have very limited knowledge of the language.
The example I have on hand of something I've been asked to plot is the following:
Where x is a function of t.
Any help would be greayly appreciated. Thank in advance!

See this: to understand how to make phase portraits in MATLAB. The following shows an example without using for-loop for your equations.
[X1,X2] = meshgrid(-5:0.5:5);
xs = arrayfun(@(x,y) {odeFun([],[x,y])}, X1, X2);
x1s = cellfun(@(x) x(1), xs);
x2s = cellfun(@(x) x(2), xs);
quiver(x1s, x2s)
axis tight equal;
function dxdt = odeFun(t,x)
dxdt(1) = 5*x(1)-9*x(2);
dxdt(2) = 1*x(1)-5*x(2);

In this question, I wanted to ask that the all the possible initial consitions are being plotted?

There are also apps that you can use to plot your phase portrait. Here's one that we created recently:
