mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN,   x, y, 0, 0); // Left Key Down
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_UP,   x, y, 0, 0); // Left Key UP


I just want to click the mouse, is it possible to not having getcursorpos first and then put it in?

Is this what you mean? This should click the mouse wherever it is, but you have to set the MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE flag to make sure it clicks the current mouse position, instead of the x and y relative to it.
POINT point;
GetCursorPos(&point);
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN | MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE,  point.x, point.y, 0, 0);
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_UP | MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE, point.x, point.y, 0, 0);
