I have a quick question, I was doing a lvl 4 security and I left the new tractor beam unit there and I completed the mission and I cant warp back there, is there a way to retrieve it or should I just buy a new one?

I don't know for how long they remain, but you should be able to scan it down using combat probes. It might still be there.

You can indeed scan them down using probes. According to the patch notes, they should remain in space for two days after deployment or last access.

Just in case for future reference, always bookmark the landing beacon of mission areas.

I haven't read up on these units (and realy should :)), but do they work as drones? ie. find an abandoned one and it's a loot pinjata? or?

As someone already suggested, you can scan it down if you forget to bm it. It has a 2 day lifespan (that timer resets each time you access/empty its cargo bay). If someone else runs across one of yours (or you find someone elses for that matter), they/you can shot at it to destroy it and the loot from it drops (only incurs a suspect timer, no concord).
