I'm certainly very interested in studying Politics Philosophy and Economics and at the moment I'm confused with what subjects to take
Is taking history really necessary? Will not taking history put me at a disadvantage? Should I take economics?
Also, I know that you have to take an essay subject ( e.g. History) but could english literature be a substitute for history?
My problem is that I did not take history for a gcse
At the moment I'm definitely doing maths and spanish but I'm not sure what other two subjects to take

I would have suggested Maths, History, Economics or Politics, Foreign Language
You can do History without having done it at GCSE. But I would guess you can take English Literature instead if you want to. Only do it if you like Lit: I don't think you have to take a traditional essay subject, so you could also go with:
Maths, Physics/Chemistry, History/Economics/Politics/English, Spanish
History would be a stronger / more traditional subject than Economics or Politics, but you will write essays in Economics or Politics too, so that will take care of written work in case you need to show that. With Physics (or Chemistry) this combination would keep your options a bit more open which would come in handy if you change your mind about doing PPE.
