or

  1. So which one had happened? You went for a walk or stay here?

Or maybe "which one had happen"?

    happen is not used like that. Events happen. Activities like go for walk, go fishing do not. ["Did you go for a walk or stay here?" is really the idiomatic question form.]

I would rephrase the first sentence to this:

"So, what happened yesterday? You went for a walk or did you stay here?"

or

"So, what did you do yesterday? Did you go for a walk or did you stay?"

Both point out with the help of the second sentence that the expected answer is limited to only two possible answers, the person went for a walk or stayed.

If you're only looking for small adjustments to what you already have I'd rephrase sentence number 2 to this:

"So what happened? You went for a walk or stayed here?"

Note that sentence number 2 does not specify the day (yesterday) you're referring to in sentence number 1.

You can ask that:

So, what happened yesterday? You went for a walk or did you stay here?"

Because we use “did”(simple past tense) when we knew something had happened but wanted more details.
