My computers disk has physical bad sectors. Is it possible to make my computer to not read or use that sectors? Maybe delete them? Until i buy a new one?

Yes. In fact that is done by the drive's controller. Nothing for you to do.
No, you cannot delete bad sectors.
Yes, you need a new hard drive AND if there is anything important on your current drive, make a backup now.

I know i can't delete them, and yes i'll buy a new disk i'm asking just for now. But, i think my files are writening in bad sector eras in my disk because sometimes they are getting damaged.

Replace the hard drive now.
It will just continue to get worse. If you keep using the bad hard drive, you might not be able to recover anything.

Your post does not make sense. You say you know you cannot delete bad sectors however in your first post;
Is it possible to make my computer to not read or use that sectors? Maybe delete them?
It appears to me you are asking IF you can delete bad sectors.
