suppose i have plotted a point on 2d graph and i know the avg speed of this point and after one minute I wish to know the coordinate of that point on 2d

Average speed doesn't have a direction component, so it is theoretically not possible to calculate the 2D coordinates.

X=0; %Initial X position
Y=0; %Initial Y position
Xspeed=5; %Speed in X direction, times 60 if you want it to be in minutes.
Yspeed=3; %Speed in Y direction, ##
nseconds=10; %Number of seconds/minutes it runs
figure
grid on
hold on
for it=1:nseconds
Plot(X+it*Xspeed,Y+it*Yspeed,'o')
end
This is what you want I think
