You're looking at this wrong.
They're not sucking up, but rather they're playing the game, and you're not.
I'm not having a go at you, but something has happened to make you the outsider. This can happen quite easily, as groups like to direct their negative emotions at a scapegoat.
What you need to do is avoid this going forward.
When you join a company you must make relationships with the people who have power. People see this and they will not risk bullying you. Also, you greatly increase your chance of being promoted and in general being protected.
I know in school they teach you to keep your head down and try to earn reward through competency, but that's not how the workplace works.
You need to stop seeing the game as sucking up and start playing it. Then you won't have this problem again.
Regarding your current situation, I think every option is OK. But if I had to choose I'd say figure out a way to stay there until you have another job. Perhaps that means listening to music on your headphone in work and forming relationships with people outside of your team.
