Russian term or phrase: Не нависай!
Желательно именно жаргонное или разговорное выражение, а не что-то вроде "don't press me".

If that's what is meant. More context would be helpful.

Then this option is fine. Few other possibilities:

Quit bugging me / Leave me alone / Let me be

Though I'd stick with 'get off my back' or 'get off my case' -- it's slangier and more expressive.
