You say that you have battery power, but the noises you describe would indicate that you have very little battery power.
Have you tried to jump start it? If it starts with a jump, I would have the battery tested post haste.
The "clicking " sound is probably the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter with the flywheel. The spinning sound may be the starter actually turning, but not engaging the flywheel.

i guess the engine was flooded. turned it over, while barely opening up the throttle and it eventually started. is doing fine now, thanks.
