To the right side by default, it seems to do it right but always leaves me a white space to the left.

Is it possible to set the text close to the left text box's margin? Thanks.

Space between text and left side of the text box

You can't. That space is always there because of the way fonts are being built. What you can do is adjust this optically via the 'Window → Type & Tables → Story' panel. Enable the 'Optical Margin Alignment' feature and play with the value below until it looks right.

Also look at this question which is similar, but more detail is being given.
