Check your battery cable that runs down to your starter. It could be loose or corroded. Try to tighten it up. Even better take it off, use some sandpaper and clean it to bare metal. Then put it back on good and tight and that might solve your problem. If not it's probably your starter.

How do you start a car if theft lights comes on?

If the theft lights blink, then that is just to scare criminals away and you can start it with any method you want to. If you are trying to break in(BAD), are hot-wireing it, or are messing with the onboard computer, then the car has detected you are trying to break into it and will not start.
