Battery will drain when sitting for long periods of time, plus its not getting recharged by the alternator because it hasnt been started once you start it, and let it run for ten minutes, it should start with no problem.

It started up on friday fine with no problem but now my car is dragging when I try to start it now. If the battery is dead what would it do. Because my clock lights are a little blurry

Well the alternator, still may not be charging, but I got some info, for you to check for a parasitic drain, but check that alternator.
