Use the Arithmetic studies to do the math for you, in particular the Study Subgraph Multiply and multiply the Close by .95. Refer to the information here:
Using the Basic Arithmetic Studies

If you are wanting to then overlay that to another chart, then refer to the following:
Study/Price Overlay Study

It's being displayed in another chart region and got a moving line of its own. I would like just to see a falt line in my main chart with the value. and the 0.95 seems too far. are you sure it's the -5%?

In terms of the region, you need to change the region for where the Study Subgraph Multiply is located. Since you want it with the main chart, this would normally be region 1 (unless you have specifically changed that). Refer to the following regarding setting the region for a study:
Chart Studies: Settings and Inputs Tab >> Chart Region

In terms of a Flat Line, we would need to know what you are looking for. In particular, what bar is the line supposed to be associated with? If it is the last bar in the chart, then change the subgraph Draw Style for the Study Subgraph Multiply to Line at Last Bar to Left Side or possibly Line at Last Bar Left to Right, just depending on what you want to see. Refer to the information here:

And yes, .95 is 95%, which is the same as -5%. Keep in mind this is -5% of the price at that time.

I need a display in my main chart that shows the % change from the previous day's sentiment or the current day's opening price. and if possible it shows the price at -5%.

Refer to the following studies:

https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/StudiesReference.php&ID=360&Name=Percent_Change_Since_Previous_Close

You can then use the Study Subgraph Multiply based on whichever of the above you use to get the -5%.

should I insert the equation in the alert section? and how could I have it displayed in my chart as a value instead of a moving line as difficult?

We are not understanding what you are asking.

and how could I have it displayed in my chart as a value instead of a moving line as difficult?

You would use the Text Display for Study from Chart study. Refer to the following:
