Just you need to put the bellow code to your theme default.xml file

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">

    <move element="minicart" destination="header.panel" after="top.search" />


This your file path



you can change in layout file and interchange the position by using tag:

<move element="minicart" destination="header.container" before="-" />

Please, refer official link for more clarity : http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.1/frontend-dev-guide/layouts/layout-types.html
