weak player's questions

This position seems to have a few prominent features:
1. The black Queen has to move.
2. The white c-Pawn is weak.
3. There might be a fork from c3 on the two Rooks.
4. There is an open d file.
So, I think that White absolutely wants to move his a-Rook to either c1 or d1. If Black moves his Queen to the d file, White will get Rd1 in "Vorhand" (what's that in english?). Will the place the Queen finally gets to be good enough as a compensation?
Moving the Queen to c7, while keeping pressure on the c Pawn, seems to put the Queen in the sights of the Bishop/Queen gun in the lower right. However, White can't move his Knight right now. How would White prepare a Knight's move now? Certainly with Rc1. So he still gets his Vorhand move, and Rc1 might even be better than Rd1.
So, what about ..Qb5?
