It's a dead or dying battery; you might have enough juice to light the lights, but not enough to turn the starter motor. Jump start the car properly; leave donor hooked up long enough to charge your battery, at least ten minutes. If your car starts, fine. If it does not start, replace your battery. After either of these, go to an auto parts store and have any codes read. They may point you to the reason your battery died; probably a dead alternator.

Alternatively, use a voltmeter to test your battery first. If it has 12V then try bypassing the starter. If it turns over, then the problem is your starter solenoid. If you have 3year or older battery, you might have a combination of problems which include the alternator and battery failure.
