Does this just happen with your trackpad or also with a real mouse? Are you able to oben the start menu etc. or does this also not work? Does your trackpad have physical buttons to click, or is a click just a tap on the pad?

Have you enabled the "Tap to click" in System Settings > Mouse > Touchpad > Tap to click slider?
