Neither!
Part of this is based on the issue of how a civilization is defined. Already we have several "civilizations" of humans as history defines them.
Another part is based on the issue of just how "civilized" did the creatures who came before mankind become. Was there a sapient "dinosaur" or not is the key. I see no reason to rule out an intelligent dinosaur.
Our civilization will collapse at some point. Either because we have expended all the fuels that provide a means to power our technology or disaster (either of our own making or catastrophic event/s). We are living in society that will replace "Atlantis" in human lore.
After the fall of our civilization it remains to be seen if another creature takes our place. But don't worry- there is nothing we can do to stop the end of our societies self destruction.

I think that situations are only going to get worse and worse and worse and that we will wind up being the last civilization on this Earth

I think you need to more clearly define "we". There have been different civilisations on Earth. Will there be others in the future where humans are not involved? The answer is no one can know. It is impossible to predict what species will evolve in the future. Therefore, you cannot predict what any future species may do.

We're at least the second sequence of humanoids to inhabit our little blue ball. We may be the last, but probably not.

Whether "we" are the first, depends on how you define the boundaries between civilizations. It is doubtful that there was some other highly-developed civilization that died out without ever having contact with the early stages of "our" civilization.

The last? Certainly. If "our" civilization were to be completely destroyed, the chances of rebuilding a civilized world would be very small.

No.

We could possibly be the last.

First? No, Last? Meh, 50/50
