Generally that's a sign that the starter motor is drawing more current than the battery can deliver. When it does, the battery voltage drops so low that it can't even hold the starter solenoid closed, so it pings open again, and the whole cycle repeats - hence the clicking.
Generally this is a sign that the battery is either flat, or defective. Occasionally (but rarely) it's a starter motor problem or a short circuit in the starter wiring.
SOO, best place to start is with the battery. If the battery's flat but otherwise checks out OK then check the charging system etc etc.
