I made the turtles follow the mouse but I wanted to make the turtles follow at a distance . How do I do that?

You can do setxy (mouse-xcor + 1) (mouse-ycor +1) to make it stay a bit further from the mouse.

Try something like this:

to go
  ask turtles [
    if (distancexy mouse-xcor mouse-ycor) > 4 [ 
      facexy mouse-xcor  mouse-ycor
      right random 180  ; a bit of random variation helps
      left random 180   ; the turtles separate from each other
      forward 0.1
