I assume the House of Representatives has approved the bill then sent it to the Senate for its vote. If the Senate then passes the bill by 69 votes or even 100 votes, the President can veto it. The Constitution does not prohibit a veto if a certain percentage of Congressmen approve it on the first try. After the bill is vetoed it goes back to the House where it originated and if that House votes by 2/3 majority to pass it, it goes to the other House for its approval. If 2/3 of that House also approves it, the bill becomes law without the President's approval. At that point in the process the President does not even have the right to veto the bill.

What happens to a bill that is voted down by the senate?

For a bill to become law it must be passed by both houses of Congress, so when the Senate passes a bill, the same bill must also go to the House of Representatives, or if the House has passed a similar bill, the two bills must be reconciled by a joint committee to produce a single bill that both houses can pass. Then when both houses have passed the same bill, the bill goes to the President for his signature. The President may or may not sign the bill, and if he doesn't, Congress can over-ride the veto if they have enough votes. Otherwise the bill dies.

Is their a way a bill in the senate can be passed with only 50 votes?

I am assuming you mean if the 100 members of the Senate were to vote 50 in favor of a bill and 50 against it. In that case, it would be the responsibility of the President of the Senate, who is the Vice President of the United States, to cast the tie breaking vote. Assuming the Vice President voted in favor of the bill, it would pass. By the way, the only time the Vice President is allowed to vote is to break ties.

What is the percentage of votes a law needs to be passed on?

Two thirds of both the House of Representatives and the Senate must vote to pass a bill. The bill is then sent to the President. The President can sign or veto the bill. If the President signs the bill, it becomes a law. If he or she veto's the bill, it goes back to the Congress to be worked on until the whole process is complete and the President signs it, or it gets discarded.
