Kotlin was made to be a more convenient Java (really). Kotlin was officially supported by Google. Java code can run Kotlin code and vice versa. So with that said, I think you should use Kotlin where possible, if it's convenient for you. I'm almost certain Kotlin will replace Java eventually.

@Nevil learn Java first, then learning Kotlin will be easier, then you can make the switch.

Google now support kotlin officialy for android development. kotlin supposed to be more easier than java ,and to be an alternative of java(which is supported by SUN Microsystems).

But what makes think twice about Kotlin is that there aren't much sources and platforms to learn Kotlin but in case of Java there are tons of sources available.
