Check your battery, the clicks normally means theres not enough juice to start.

I would charge the battery and get it load tested to see if it's ok. I would also check the Charging system to make sure you don't have the issue again, especially if you didn't accidentally leave the lights on.

X2. If not the battery, get the alternator tested to see if it is producing enough power to charge everything.
