I want to add sdc disk but is not empty and i have this message :

What do you mean by 'no empty device'?

If there are data on this device, creating an LVM volume will destroy everything on it so be careful.
if i use Disk -> Directory it could be good ?

Yes there are data on this device

You can try 'Datacenter->Storage->Add' and then choose the right type for your storage.
