First of all i should like to tell you about the website, i created the website in wordpress and it was in http protocol, but after adding the payment gateway we moved our website to https protocol, so for this i added this code in my htaccess file.

RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.
RewriteRule .* https://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

and we are using Yoast premimum plugin for the SEO in our wordpress website admin panel. we added the website in google webmaster with http protocol, so please tell me that we need to change the url with https in the Google Dashboard?

When i try to fetch as Google in my Google dashboard, then it is displaying this message to me.

http://example.com/

Googlebot type: Desktop (render requested)

This URL redirected to:     
https://www.example.com/

So can someone help me to sort out the issue or mistake that i did or i need to remove 301 redirect from my .htaccess file, because in last 4-5 months website index is decreased, i am attaching 3 screenshots from the google, so please give me your suggestion, so i can fix them.
