Charge the battery. Or get it tested. Or if it looks very old, just replace it ......and charge the new one.
The clicking from the starter solenoid is a dead give-away for a dead battery.

There are other things that can cause this, like a bad starter or the engine seized up but thankfully those causes are not very common.

Just so we are clear here, I am NOT advocating replacing parts based only on a guess.
Batteries aren't terribly expensive and the evidence is good but that is NOT a good habit to get into.
A multi-meter can be had at Harbor Freight for $7 and at WalMart for about $15.
That might keep you from wasting $100 on a new battery.
