I'm guessing that your battery is probably quite old. If the battery is over 5 years old and you are not driving everyday, the clock and other electrical equipment will drain it fairly quickly. If old, replace. If battery is new, drive to your local Autozone and have them test your alternator. It may be bad and not charging your battery.
