    Ideally a bit of both, but if I had to choose then Programming.

    Get interested in MCSA: SQL 2016 Database Development or: MCSA: SQL Server 2012/2014 (start with 70-461 about T-SQL or 70-462 about administration of SQL Server, next 70-463 about data warehousing).

    70-764 + 70-765 = MCSA SQL administration
    70-761 + 70-762 = MCSA SQL Development, MCSE Data mgmt&analytics
    70-765 is the easiest one, whereas the other three are pretty hard.
    70-764 and 70-762 exams have common area called in 764 "Manage and monitor SQL Server instances" and in 762 "Optimize database objects and SQL infrastructure"; of course exam questions are not the same.
    In my opinion it is a good idea to study both for SQL server administration and SQL db development
