Click can mean a weak battery , even though the lights are on in the car, just not enough cold cranking amps. check the voltage.

Thank u tom ,now if it was just the alternator what results would I get or if both the battery and alternator

If the alternator was bad you would have a battery light lit up on the dash. Like I mentioned, your first step is to measure the voltage on the battery or remove it and have your local auto parts store do it for you. 12.3V or more with engine off, 14V with engine running. That means the alternator is working correctly.
