    If both you and the person you are talking to live in the same house and are at home at the time of speaking, use, "Is your friend taking you the party and bringing you (back) home?"

    If you are somewhere other than the other person's home (and you are not at the location where the party will take place), then "Is your friend taking you to the party and also taking you home?"
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
