How to check if "(direct) / (none)" source/medium comes from previously viewed ads?

Hi guys, 

 

When I pull the report from All Traffic - Source/Medium, I can see that naturally many users come from source (direct) / (none), maybe even too many. 

 

However, I would like to know if there is a way to check if these users haven't seen first one of my ads in Google Search or Facebook without clicking on it, and maybe after some time they would have remembered it and entered the site url directly, hence generating traffic in this source?

 

Thanks for your help, any advice would be appreciated. 

Kind regards,

Antoaneta

View-through conversions are available for Google Display (https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/AdWords-Tracking-and-Reporting/How-are-view-through-conver...) but there is no equivalent for Google Search or Facebook ads.  Sorry :-(
