Please look at the statement which I know is ok.

  • I'm not going anywhere without you!

The second one I am not sure about is:

  • I don't go anywhere without you!

Are they both correct?

These are both "correct", after a fashion, but "I don't go anywhere without you" is an unusual phrasing that would only be appropriate in a specific context:

A: Do you understand? Are my instructions clear?
B: I understand -- I don't go anywhere without you.

We can assume that, previously, A told B, "Don't go anywhere without me", and so B is simply repeating A's instructions back to him.

Otherwise it would be more natural to say

I will not / won't go anywhere without you.

or, more formally:

I shall not / shan't go anywhere without you.
