Do I just uncheck this?
Retain backups in the default backup directory.

This option will keep backups in the default local backup directory even after the backups have been transferred to another destination.

If this option is not selected, backups will be deleted after being moved to another destination.

Please help. I am seriously stressed out with my current backup solution.

Hello :)

Yes, you can configure your remote destination under the "Additional Destinations" section in:

"WHM Home » Backup » Backup Configuration"

SFTP is available as a destination type. Ensure that "Retain backups in the default backup directory." is not selected if you do not want to keep a copy of your backups on the local server.

Thank you.
