As @whuber noted in comments, there is little advantage to using this test for your data set. Your question does, however, bring up some common potential misconceptions about this test.
In general, the Wilcoxon rank-sum test (also known as the Mann-Whitney U test) tests a null hypothesis that the probability is 50% that a randomly drawn value from one population will be larger than a randomly drawn value from the other. (Let's put aside for now the fact that the test was developed for continuous distributions while your data are evidently all integer, with the values identically equal to 1 in half or more of cases, requiring substantial correction for ties.)
The alternative hypothesis can be stated as:
The probability of an observation from population X exceeding an observation from population Y is different (larger, or smaller) than the probability of an observation from Y exceeding an observation from X
To interpret the test in terms of a shift of something like the median, you need to assume that the distribution of values is the same for the 2 samples except for the shift. That can be a pretty strong assumption.
In terms of using the median as a measure of a shift, you already know that the median values of both your samples are the same and at the minimum observed values; that is, both samples are at their (identical) minimum values for over half of the observations. So your intuition about the medians isn't correct in this case; it may be true for some higher percentile than the median (like the third quartile).
Finally, you should be careful about using one-sided tests if there might in principle be differences going in either direction between the 2 samples. In some circumstances like equivalence testing one-sided tests can be appropriate, but you certainly shouldn't, for example, use a one-sided test after you saw that one sample had larger values than the other.
