May be a bad battery,but like you said could be the case of alternator being bad all so,if it will nit crank by jumping and you just get a click,this could be bad connections at battery or the low amperage from battery may have damaged the starter,if you happen to get it started go have the alternator checked,but after checking all above and it still clicks ,you may need a new starter.
