Don't worry, pretty much every person who has ever skated has a strong side and a weak side. For me everything I did with my right leg on the outside (i.e. turns to the left, stopping facing left, etc.) has always felt more easy/natural than the opposite direction, but you develop your weak side with practice. The jittery feeling stopping on your weak edge is totally normal, it's just you not getting the pressure applied to the ice properly, it goes away with practice too. Maybe you have over-pronation issues, but what you are describing are common problems for all new skaters.
