Hi,

you mean something like this?

Clear[x];
r = 1;
K = 1;
eqn = x[t]^2 - r x[t] (1 - x[t]/K) == 0 // Simplify;
sol = NDSolve[{eqn, x[0] == 1/2, x'[0] == 0}, x[t], {t, 0, 50}][[1]]

ParametricPlot[Evaluate[{x[t] /. sol, D[x[t] /. sol, t]}], {t, 0, 50},
Frame -> True, AxesLabel -> {"x", Overscript[x, "."]},
AspectRatio -> 1]
ParametricPlot[Evaluate[{t, x[t] /. sol}], {t, 0, 50}, Frame -> True,
AxesLabel -> {"t", "x"}, AspectRatio -> 1]
