Your battery sounds like it is dead, check it and get a new one. the clicking sounds to me like the starter, they will make a loud clicking noise when there is not enough juice to get them turning.

Tammy the sad news is that i think you have broke the piston. Was there enough oil in the engine? The loud noise and the non starting sounds like the engine is broken.

Noisey Cub Cadet mower

If the noise is coming from the deck, locate the idle pulley on the deck. there should be 1 or 2 rubber "bumpers" at the opposite end of the pulley arm where it meets the "j" pin. If they are missing, it will make a loud metal to metal sound.

Screw a test gage in the engine where the electric sending unit is. Check to see what the pressure is cold and after it is warmed up. It may be a bad sender.
