About the sentence

to get sth out of your system

If you get something out of your system, you release or get rid of a negative feeling (e.g. anger, stress, anxiety) by expressing the feeling (e.g. by shouting at someone or talking to someone about whatever is worrying you). 

You might also really want or desire to do something, and by doing it, you get rid of the desire and don't want to do it anymore - you get it out of your system.
