Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause a no start condition but if you're hearing a clicking from the engine compartment then it's attempting to crank.

If you get a single click from the engine compartment then you most likely have a bad starter, but it could be a cable or connection issue. The starter's positive feed, engine ground, and power to the solenoid would need to be tested before condemning the starter.

If you're hearing a rapid clicking, or it can sometimes cause a single click, then most likely you have a dead battery. You can try a jump start but it may not working due to many variables, if that didn't work then the battery should either be load tested or replaced with a known good one.
