What you will need to do is either leave the country and re-enter with a new I-94 or check with your nearest CBP office to see if you can get an extended I-94. As of right now, you are accumulating illegal stay. I would suggest speaking to a local immigration attorney who might be able to go to the CBP office on your behalf.

I also have flight on 8/12 to Bulgaria but it will 184 day of overstay. Should I change the flight or better going by car to Canada before the 180 day?

You should not wait past the 180th day.

Can day hold me at the border if I go before the 180th day? or if they are not willing to extend my I-94 they will give me some notice or something?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I meant if I go out to Canada and coming back they don't allow me to enter, what are they going to give me, some notice or they will hold me directly there

There shouldn't be any issue if you have not accrued 180 days of unlawful presence.
