One method would be to use Find/Change...
Presuming that all of the places you want to insert this are in front of numbered footnote markers, you could do it in a number of ways. If these are truly footnote markers (that update automatically if you add or remove a note), you can do a GREP search for ~F and set the Find Format to superscript or your character style. Change to ~<$0
If these are not "real" markers you can search for \d+ (again with the format set to superscript or the character style). Same change expression.
Thanks for the fast reply Peter.
I might be doing something wrong because when i put "~<$0" in Change, it will add the extra space in front but will also change the character superscript number. By the way, the number is a real number and not a footnote marker.

Your search field is empty, so you are not finding the number. Instead you are finding anything that has your style, and changing that to the literal $0 text, apparently.
$0 is a special string that is supposed to mean "found text", but you aren't finding any text. Put \d+ in the find field and try again.
Great info, indeed, Peter. Sorry for the delay.
Finally i was able to change it now.
