Yes,

    It can have the acceleration in negetive x direction if the velocity of the body is decreasing without changing the direction of motion.

 

But at an instant the direction of acceleration has nothing to do with the direction of motion.

This is the instantaneous velocity that tells the direction of motion at any instant.Instantaneous velocity is defined as dv/dt.
