    Battery has died by the sound of it. Check the water levels and stick it on charge for the night,if no luck you'll need a new one.

    90% sure battery that click is the starter motor trying to turn your engine over, if it gets to the stage where it only clicks then your battery is dead.

    you could jump it then leave it running for 20-30mins (take it for a drive) then turn it off and on again see if the batery has charged, if it hasnt then new one is needed.

    I had this same problem the other day, turns out it was where the battery acid was corroding the terminals and theres an iffy connection on the positive-poured boiling water on the terminals and job solved...for a bit.

    it might be the spelling valve,

    because you mispelt almost all your words it would of flooded and the car won't start because your stupid.

    Battery might not be faulty, just might have run flat is all. Bump or jump it and see how things go.

    don't get a new battery unless your sure u realy have to.

    jump or push start it and see if it starts.

    (check if u got enough fuel, might sound dumb, but it cud be the case tht your fuel pump might be playing up)
