Make sure it's in park, or neutral if manual tranny. Make sure battery connections are tight and clean. Check starter relay and check ignition switch electrical portion to ensure it's getting current from the battery to the relay.
The ticking or clicking sound is coming from your Starter Solenoid because it is not getting enough Voltage from the Battery to engage the Starter Drive. It sounds like you have a dead Battery, try recharging your Battery first to see if it holds a full charge or check your Battery with a Volt Meter, when not running it should show at least 11.5-12.5 Volts, which would be enough power to start your car, any lower than that replace the Battery.
even if your starter is out it would still click when you tried starting the car. so try replacing your battery first thats the most common problem for random starting. also look under the car you may need to jack it up. look under the intake manifold that is where the starter is check to see that everything is hooked correctly and that all the bolts are tightend securley and not loose on one side.
