i have 3 leds they are red that probably are 1.6 each one amd i got a 5 v outlet if i connect the 3 leds in serie would be 4.8 volts so do i need a resistor or would be fine to let those 0.2 volts free??

Plug them in and see. If the leds starts to get warm they are not liking that extra voltage. If they keep cool, you are safe without that resistor.
