Hello. I'm knitting a sweater and um doing ribbing and it says end on right side once ribbing measures 3 3/4 inches. What does end on right side mean ? Does it mean to do the last row with the right side facing me ? Thanks

If it's k1p1 ribbing, I start and end the ribbing with a k1 regardless of the directions. That way, I can seam back to front on knit sts and with mattress st, they will look like another knit st in the ribbing.
Since ribbing doesn't really have a right or wrong side, it doesn't matter where you stop. But when you get to the end of that last row, mark the side facing you as the right side (use a big safety pin) and for the rest of the project you will know which side is which. It does matter in some stitch patterns which side you are working on.
On some things like doing the 2 sides of a sweater, it is confusing having left/right and wrong/right sides, so sometimes you will see the wrong/right sides referred to as private/public sides. Then right side means the side which is on the right side of your body, and public side refers to the side which will be seen when you are wearing it.
