You can "try" using a small stiff wire with a 1/8 inch bent 45 degree on one end & insert the 45 degree end into the center of CD slot (lay the 45 flat so not to scratch cd) apprx 3 1/2 inches
Turn the 45 down into the center of the CD & "carefully" pull the CD out.
IF you are not able to do this, then it would be best to have a Repair Shop retrieve it, as there are special tools needed to disassemble the Radio & Mechanism to remove the stucj CD.
IF you are going to have the Unit Repaired, the Repair Shop will return the CD
IF you are going to replace the complete unit, then you can try to disassemble, but you will destroy the CD Mechanism without special tools.

will i be able to "use" the player then? i don't want one to get stuck again.

Once you slide the CD out, it will depend on what caused the CD to get stuck.
Typically the Mechanism is the problem, but I cannot see your unit.
IF you have used "Home made" CD's, with a label, it could be the Label that has caused the issue
IF this is a store bought CD, then likely the Mechanism is at fault & I would NOT insert another CD, until it is repaired, otherwise you could have the same problem
