    I need an official ruling on this.

    If i have a pokemon with 2 retreat cost and i play galar mine down- that would make its retreat cost . So if i play buff padding on it, does it get 50 extra hp from that tool?

    If you'd like an official ruling, you should post your questions in the "Ask the Rules Team" forum.

    Galar Mine adds 2 to the Retreat Cost making the Active's Retreat Cost 4.
    Buff Padding only works on Pokemon with a Retreat Cost of 4.
    Your Active has a 4 Retreat Cost so Buff Padding adds 50 to its HP.

    And also note it only works when it is Active, per Galar Mine.
