Can you switch to another gamertag on xbox live when you have your account under your parents gamertag? My friends don't know my parents gamertag.

Its not really clear what your asking, but...You can use whatever gamertag you want on your console.  However, another tag will not be able to use any marketplace content purchased with the other account.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Incorrect Capn. 

OP, you can certainly create a new gamertag if you like.  However, the DLC you may have purchased is linked to the current gamertag.  Although you will be able to still use it on the console it was originally downloaded to you will not be able to use it on other consoles unless that tag is logged in.

Also, content cannot be transferred between accounts.

Finally, if the tag you are posting with is yours you can still use it.  When your parents created your account they added theirs as the parental account.  Your friends will not see that tag when they are playing with you, only yours.
