Check your battery cables and make sure they're tight. Try a jump start. If cables are tight and jumping it doesn't work (or only runs for a minute then dies when you put a load on it (like shifting into gear) you'll need a battery to start with.) Then you can have a charging system test performed to see if alternator was charging the battery or not.
