So from the beginning it's very likely that you're going to find yourself up again an experienced pet battler with a large collection of pets of every family that are rare and level 25. This means you're going to lose, a lot, while you learn. Some of the pet collectors I know have gotten frustrated and just given up on PvP.
There are two types of PvP battlers that you're going to meet a lot. First are those folks that enjoy the strategy and have spent hundreds of hours refining their technique and pet collection. Then there are the ones who just want easy wins, who watch the forums and happily adopt whatever pet team is currently almost unbeatable and use it till somebody else posts a surefire way to beat it.
I think you need to work on building up your pet collection before seriously jumping into PvP. For example, I didn't see any Undead. Check your Auction House for Weebomination and Ghastly Kid, they've gotten to be fairly cheap since anyone with a Level 3 Menagerie in their garrison will get them if they regularly do the daily.
You also need to spend some time, unfortunately a lot of time, leveling up your pets. A side benefit to this, fighting wild pets teaches the sort of strategies that you'll need for PvP and gives you an opportunity to build up your pet collection. I don't know if EU realms are on same schedule as US but September 23 - 29 is Pet Battle Bonus Event here. You get triple pet XP during the event. Also there's a quest during that weekend that rewards an Ultimate Battle Stone for winning 5 PvP battles. This is the best time for a PvP newbie as the chances are much better you'll be meeting casual battlers that are trying to score the Battle Stone.
Two pets you already have that I'd highly recommend leveling to 25, your Anubisath Idol and the Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling. The dragonling would also benefit from being stoned to Rare.
The ultimate website for serious pet PvP'ers is Discodoggy's
Good luck. Hope I haven't sounded too discouraging.
