Bet you can!
Sometimes, we need to mute only certain parts of the same track. To save you from the hassle of separating the regions to different tracks, just go ahead and mute that one region!
Here's how to do this:
(1) Split the tracks using Ctrl/Cmd + E
(2) Right click the region you want to mute and select Mute region OR select the regions you want to mute and then press Ctrl/Cmd + M
