Can anyone please tell me what i am doing wrong.
i wanted to create a bluray disk, so i set the composition to 1920x1080 at 29.97fps.
But did you scale the content? AE doesn't to any auto-fitting/ scaling. Just making the comp bigger will only increase the boundaries...
so i must make the animation bigger in flash or can i do that in ae?

In AE, right-click the footage in the composition area next to the timeline. Find Transform, choose fit to comp, or I would say fit to Width. Your footage will be scaled automatically how you'd like it to fit best. Or choose Layer in the menu, Transform and you'll find the same options.
What frame rate do you think i should use? The swf files are 30fps. Also- should i render it as an avi, quicktime or h.264-blu-ray for import into Adobe Encore?

This is slightly out of my area of expertise, swf and 30fps, but I think you answered your own question above; as you state your AE comp is HD and 29.97. I'm not an expert in Blue-Ray, but I would say you'd want to be at the drop-frame fps.
Best is not to compress your export of the AE comp. Compress later in Adobe Media Encoder or FCP Compressor. Render out of AE in 4444 ProRes if you need the alpha channel or else Animation, PNG or the like. Or even 422. Then compress to your preferred format for use in Encore. I would say a full HD h264 would work well.
