dead battery, no question, try charging or more likely need to be replaced

Try jump starting the car, if it starts then you know you have a low battery, and then either the battery is old, and doesn't hold a charge, or there is a charging system problem.

You have a dead battery Make sure the car is in park also

Check your timing belt. You might need to replace it. Check all your sensors , lights and caps
