I'm, but not pure My grandmothers mother was jewish, but father no. So my grandmother is a bit jewish, my mather is a bit jewish and I'm a bit jewish
Actually, according to Judaism, you are completely 100% Jewish.
That's because being Jewish or not is maternally passed down. If your maternal grandmother's mother was Jewish, then your grandmother was Jewish and your mother and you...unless you opted out and converted to something else.

But my mother was grown up like Christian, I was grown up like Christian, and my mothers mother was grown up like christian, because her mother who was 100% Jew died after gave birth to my grandmother. So I think I am Christian, but have Jewish blood. Right?
absolutely; your family obviously opted out and "converted" to Christianity.
Historically, a lot of Jewish families did that when things were rough for Jews in certain geographic areas...especially if they had the added "convenience" of having a non-Jewish father.
And, people just opted out because they made the choice to follow the Dad's religion.
