It needs either a new washer or a new cartridge. Washers go in conventional taps (US=faucets) and may need the valve seat recutting, cartridges go into ceramic disc taps where off to fully on is just a quarter turn. If your tap has a lever to lift and operate for flow and left and right for temperature then it's a cartridge tap. Washers are expected to fail and be replaced, cartridges are intended to last the entire product lifespan but do sometimes wear out, break or seize due to limescale or dirt in the water supply.
Unfortunately there are so many designs and types that it's not practical to give you a blow by blow account of how to do the job, especially as there's no way to upload diagrams to FixYa. It also seems like you were unaware before asking this question what causes a tap to leak to start with, so it's a fair assumption that this job would currently be beyond your skills. A professional plumber should be able to re-washer or re-cartridge a tap in comfortably under fifteen minutes, so I'd suggest getting a local plumber in to do the job for you. Washers cost pennies, cartridges often cost £5 to £10 and on some taps are a proprietary design which may have no spares availability in which case the tap must be replaced.
