i havesmall gaps due to uneven wall between my skirting, im in an upstairs flat and this causes somehow a draught to come up these gaps , can i get away with just caulking the gap or should i think of removing the skirting and using expanding foam in the grounging area behind the skirting.?

Yeah just caulk, dont take off the skirts! unless your talking about seriously big gaps!

Apply caulk bead and smooth with spatular, or finger. I find latex gloves perfect for this job. You will be amazed at how much better they look. Its worth getting a decent caulk, not b&q / screwfix own - I find they shrink too much and dont have much pigment.
