I will be meeting him there on March the 16th. But I'm not really sure if I'll meet him on the 16th March, exactly. So, should I say this:

I will be there around the middle of March.

?

Is the above sentence correct? Or should it be one of these:

I will be there around in the middle of March.

I will be there around at the middle of March.

?

Just "around" is correct – no need for "in" or "at." (Sometimes we do use "in" and "at" together with "around," but they come first: "I'll be there at around 3:00"; "I'll arrive in around three hours.")

Your first statement is correct.

You do not want to "stack" prepositions that each modify the same thing. You could say "I will be there around the middle of March" or "I will be there in the middle of March," but not "I will be there around in the middle of March." Also, you would not say "at the middle of March" at all.
