Question Mark flashing folder on boot up with new harddrive. HELP!?

Text:

I know I have a really old MacBook but it's been a trooper. So my original harddrive has finally given out and I bought a replacement? I start up the mac and get the flashing folder with the question mark. I dont have the install disk as I bought it second hand and don't know of any other methods to get the OS on my new harddrive so I can use the computer. Can someone please help me?

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Late 2008 and Early 2009
