Hi everyone, I have written some pieces and I am ready to share with the world. But I´m scared to post them because I think someone might steal my work. Is there a way I can put like some copyright thing and people cant download my work

Upload the score and select the option that says others cannot download your score. Also set the copyright to something more than Creative commons copyright waver.

If you set the copyright to None (All rights reserved) then no one can legally use it in any way except for "fair use" without your permission. There is a checkbox in the "Copyright and download" section (click the link) for Disable score download as well as the copyright dropdown.

As long as the score is Private, you're the only one who can see it. If you want others to be able to find it, you will need to make it public. If you only want people to see it with your permission, then set it to Unlisted.

This really isn't the help forum for musescore.com, that is found at https://musescore.com/groups/improving-musescore-com

Copyright law makes it illegal for people to steal your work automatically - you don't need to do anything special to make that happen. However, it doesn't make it impossible for them to try, so if you're really worried about this, best not to post it. However, It's incredibly unlikely that anyone would ever attempt to make money from a composition you post - it's probably never happened in the history of musescore.com or any other score sharing website.
