First off you have something draining your battery,something is staying on when you turn off your key,this is called a draw,Good Luck check for the dome light staying on after you turn off the car etc.#2 you might have a blown head gasket,check your water level,and check for water in your oil it might look like brown or white foam.stick you finger in the end of your exhaust pipe feel for wet nasty stuff.you could also just have a thermostat not working!

You need to know why the battery went dead. It is usually a bad charging situation. It could be loose alternator belt, bad alternator, or a short draining everything. A quick way to check is to turn on the headlights after you have it started.
At idle the lights should be a little dimmer than when you rev the engine. If always dim, then the alternator is probably shot.
You should have fixed the oil leak. It could have started a fire, and is cheap to fix. If there is noise now, you may have ruined the engine by running out of oil. Check the oil.

I have a 2001 holden commodore with car alarm to press when turning on the car, I have recently purchased a new battery for this particular model.
I have had this battery for over 3weeks and during this time maybe once or twice the car won't start? i have to give a few attempts before it will actually start again. Not sure if this is a battery problem or just a tuning problem/
when attempting for the next time i want to use the car it clicks like the battery is dead then i have to take key out and try it again maybe 3-4 times before i can get it started is this a battery problem or a alternator i don't know can someone help here.

The reason your battery is dying is because your alternator is dead. When alternators go out they sometimes stay in a position that will drain the battery even when the car is off. The alternator is also responsible for charging the battery when the car is running.
The reason your car is smoking is because where ever the oil leak is, it's pooling somewhere under hood. When the engine gets hot enough, the pool of oil starts to boil and smoke as it evaporates.
Oil is VERY important to your engine. If you have a bad leak, it's going to cause other engine problems very quickly. Find the source of the leak and fix it. Your car will also stop smoking.
