    I think you may have misheard the quote. I imagine that what was said was:

    "You're gonna have to make this decision".

    "Gonna" is a colloquial contraction of "going to", so the sentence would read "You are going to have to make this decision".

    I believe that this is an African American expression, which means what emsr2d2 said, that is to say: "You are going to have to make this decision".
