There could be many reasons for your problem. The first one is most probably a flat battery. Try connecting you car's battery to another car's battery using jumper leads +ve to +ve and -ve to -ve , start the other car's engine and allow it to charge your battery for a short while. DO NOT attempt to start your engine yet! After a while, stop the other engine, then remove the jumper leads and try to start your car. Be careful when connecting/removing the jumper leads, do not let them touch anything else besides the battery terminals while one end is still connected to a battery.

If it starts OK after that you need to find out why the battery went flat. Did you leave the headlights on after you turned off the motor last night perhaps? Take it to an auto electrician to have the charging circuit checked out.
