When I create it like this " ", it creates the field including the quotes "\" \"", and when I put only a blank space it creates an empty string.

It looks like we're trimming whitespace from the beginning/end of the expression, so you end up with nothing if you use a blank space. When you use quotes, we assume you actually want the quotes in the field.

${str:unescapeJava(' ')} will result in a space, but ${str:unescapeJava('\\u0020')} might be better, as it's a little more explicit.
