We have following scenario currently and BLUE link is active and running, now i am going to get second link for redendency which is right side of diagram.

enter image description here

As you can see currently i have VLAN 9 (AWS direct connect) configured and working which i terminated on Cisco ASA firewall and running BGP on it, now i want to setup second backup link to AWS in that case should i need to create new VLAN 10 (interface Port-Channel1.10) to terminated on Cisco ASA? or is there any other method to handle this solution?

Need some advice or guidance how i should handle this kind of scenario and how should i configure BGP to handle failover?

Creating another VLAN is a reasonable way to go. Yes, you should use BGP to detect when one side becomes unreachable.
