Opção:

I'm like a fish out of water here.

''I'm like a fish out of water here up in the stands. I'd be much happier if I was down on the field coaching or in some other capacity.'' [Orlandosentinel.com - USA]

Definição do "Thefreedictionary'' [a fish out of water]: appearing to be completely out of place; in a very awkward manner.

Outra opção: to be the fifth wheel.

No sentido literal significa "ser a quinta roda" — também conhecido como estepe; o pneu sobressalente do carro. No sentido figurado, quer dizer que você é uma pessoa que está sobrando ou sendo excluída.

Definição:

• an extra person who is not needed in a group
= uma pessoa extra que não é necessária em um grupo
(Merriam-Webster’s Advanced Learner’s English Dictionary)

Exemplos:

  1. He felt more and more like a fifth wheel at the office.
    = Ele se sentiu mais e mais como um excluído no escritório.
    (Merriam-Webster’s Advanced Learner’s English Dictionary)

  2. They enjoy making any outsider feel like a fifth wheel.
    = Eles gostam de fazer alguém de fora se sentir sobrando.
    (Dictionary.com)

  3. I am the fifth wheel all the time.
    = Eu sempre fico sobrando.

"Fifth wheel" reminded me of Robertson Davies' inventive title Fifth Business, an amazing novel by a great Canadian writer. Davies himself explained the meaning of the title this way:

"Those roles which, being neither those of hero nor Heroine, Confidante nor Villain, but which were none the less essential to bring about the Recognition or the denouement were called the Fifth Business in drama and Opera companies organized according to the old style; the player who acted these parts was often referred to as Fifth Business.
—purportedly Tho. Overskou, Den Danske Skueplads


Davies was pressured by his publisher to provide some clear idea of what exactly "Fifth Business" was, and so Davies affixed this opening quotation, which was taken at face value. Only in 1979, when the book's Norwegian translator failed to find the citation, did Davies admit it was his invention."

And then there's the "third wheel", which, according to Wikipedia, is "a corruption of fifth wheel, which refers to someone who deters the socialization of a couple, perhaps when being invited out of pity or through a feeling of duty".

The 'third wheel' é a boa e conhecida pessoa 'vela' heheh

I think we can also say 'to feel left out' in a sense of being in a place where everyone is talking or interacting of somehow and you're just there like a lemon, not talking to anyone or not doing anything - sobrando.

eg- Everyone knew each other at the party but me. I felt really left out.

Confere, gente? =)

Agreed, Gabi.
The third wheel could be used in that sense of hanging out with a couple (friends) and being/making them be - in that awkward situation. Here "segurando vela" in Portuguese.
In a way, being the third wheel it´s not cool and it´s frowned upon. the Urban Dictionary says.

That of "feel like being left out" in a party or having the feeling of not belonging, I would rather use the "feeling of being the odd man out/the one out." (there are other ways to express that, but the "third wheeler" is not much used in that sense, I think.)

Other expression that would do the trick would be "I am feeling like the outsider here/I am the outsider here." or may
be in a joking way "I don´t know a thing/much of engineering, I would just spoil the chat!"

I am no expert on the subject, enjoy the chat/enjoy the party guys, I have to take a pee (or any other excuse!)


"Fish out of the water" is a nice imagery as well.
