Positive to positive, negative to negative. The big red post on the fuse box is positive, hook up negative to anything metal. So you need to have the battery checked, and the alternator checked that keeps the battery charged.

It sondes like you have couple of things going on here, there should be a red plastic rectangular box on the positive cable just between the drivers fender and the motor, open the box and there will be a contact stud inside hook the positive charger cable there then hook the negative to any good ground, like an exposed bolt on the engine will work, after it is fully charged and hopefully it is a very short distance to a shop go ther and have the charge/starting system checked over, you could have an alternator that is not charging or even draining the battery when the engine is off, or a battery that just won't hold a load properly.

If your battery won't accept a charge and you will know that in a short charge time then the battery will need replaced before having the charging system checked.
