Yes both hoses should lead outside. Condensation naturally forms inside an air conditioner. Air has moisture, (Water), in it. As warm air cools the molecules of the air condense, and the moisture is released. There are drains in the bottom of the air conditioner to catch this released moisture, and hoes that lead the moisture to the outside of the home.
Is the hose long enough to lead outside? Can you lead it outside in the same fashion as the other hose? Does the outside of the air conditioning unit, lean slightly down on the outside? It should have a little bit of a pitch.
Looking at the side of the air conditioner, the front is inside the house. The back is outside. The back should be tipped down about 1/2 inch.

Aircons with 2 hoses normally do need to go outside. Please provide the make and model of the unit to confirm.

make sure the water hose is running down hill and can flow easly is there some water coming out of the hose and the rest from the unit . you will have to take it apart and check the hose clamp it tight.

After reading your post, it made perfect sense. In your situation, you don't want to use water to clear the PVC pipe(s), you should use compressed air. Which is what most HVAC technicians use. If you know someone that has a portable air compressor, that would definitely do the trick. You would do all this from the outside, rather than the inside.
I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
