Could be a low battery, or bad battery cables or connections.

Try to jump start it. If when you connect another car battery to yours and the starter spins over as it should, charge your battery @ 2amps for 12 hr. If you get it started, go to Auto Zone or such auto parts store and have them put an ODB tester and check your charging system and battery.
