Which Gods should we worship of it's a small shrine in my house. I want to worship Athena but I'm not sure of I can.

At any size home shrine, one worships one's household deities. Who these are varies by locale, social group, profession/career, station in life and personal desire. There are several deities whose worship is primarily prominent in domestic cultus, but it is not exclusive. 


There isn't any reason why you should not venerate Pallas among your household deities. She was quite popularly venerated, historically, in household worship, actually. Statuettes of her are among the most common archaeological finds as far as votive statues are concerned.
