thank you guys but im still not sure about (No te hagas pato) as i have two different answers by Quentin and A,

I know you said you knew what the first one said but do you know the real English meaning which is "a storm in a tea cup".

'No la hagas de tos', or 'no me la hagas de tos' = do not argue with me
' No te hagas pato' = do not be so lazy, and go do what you have to do. do not waist time.
But be carefull, these are just to be used among friends, you will never, ever use these expressions in a formal conversation.

No la hagas de tos, literally traslate like don't pretend be sick ( cold )
No te hagas pato means like don't pretend be a Duck.
All the phrases try to say to somebody that don't do too much drama using a funny words
