Check the heat shield, over the rear exhaust silencer, hasn't corroded where the retaining bolts hold it onto the body. If it corrodes then it partially collapses onto the silencer and rattles when going through pot holes.

So i have been under the car and there is no heat shield i moved the exhaust but it dosen't touch anything btw the sound is like a slight knocking could it be in the brake drum ?
but i doubt it also if there are more people in back the noise is quieter

Have a good look at the handbrake cables, depending on which model of Agila you have, it could be a bracket loose or broken.
