This depends on how many moles of gas you have as reactants and as products. During compression the reaction will shift in favor of whichever side has less moles of gas to try to maintain its pressure level; during expansion the reaction will shift in favor of whichever side has more moles of gas since the system would be losing pressure.
the K constant does not change with a change in pressure-- only temperature. however, the reaction will adjust to compensate any disruptions made to the equilibrium. when you decrease the volume the reaction will shift to the side with less moles of gas. if you increase the volume the reaction will shift towards the side with more moles of gas
