How you fix it depends on the kind of faucet you have.  Is this a single handle or two handles.  Any idea how old it is?  Could you take a picture of post it here?

If there's a brand name anywhere or you can get a picture of a logo, that would be helpful too.

Remove the trim cap (blue arrow) with a small screwdriver or knife blade.  Under it is a screw.  Remove the screw.  The handle should pull straight up.

 

Unscrew the cover for the valve body (red arrow) and remove.

 

Inside the valve body will be a cartridge.  It's probably held in place with some kind of clip.  Remove the clip and pull out the cartridge.  Take it to Home Depot where a plumbing associate can help you find a replacement.

 

You might find the manufacturer's name on the aerator (green arrow).  Flash light and/or magnifying glass may help.  Most if the major manufacturers are pretty good about providing free replacement parts if you're willing to wait.
