Below the northern horizon (not visible)
At azimuth 0 degrees, and altitude 50 degrees
At azimuth 50 degrees, and altitude 0 degrees

Your latitude = the elevation of Polaris. So, at 50 degrees latitude, Polaris is 50 degrees above the northern horizon, assuming you're in the northern hemisphere.

You did not say 50 Degrees North or South. 50 Degrees South and you can not see Polaris.
50 Degrees North and Polaris is 50 degrees above Your Horizon.

At an altitude very close to 50° above the northern horizon at azimuth 0° or 180°
