I think you mean "grotty": not a positive adjective eg "that food's really grotty." (bad, in an informal way)
"atta" I think I need some context for this.Is it like "atta boy!" to give encouragement a short form of, say, that's my boy, maybe after a good move in a football match.
"a geek" is what one of my friends here calls me, it's someone who is excessively interested in boring things, like computers, technological things, trains etc!!!!

Hi Sharon, thank you for the meanings and yes, you guessed the context: it was "atta girl"
