You'll have to answer a few questions about your first take. I'll share a few of these.
How much did you score?
What was the sectional breakup?
How long did you prepare?
What material did you use?
What is your target score?
When do you want to go the next attempt?

It would not be possible for the experts/moderators to guide you unless they know your GMAT score. So it is always advisable to provide your detailed score at GMAT club. Looking at your post I believe you are scoring nearby 500. Following posts may help you to find a way through to higher GMAT score.

Please don't get dishearten from the low score. All you need is more practice. Do order an ESR report to know where did you go wrong. Take one week break and then start off again. Start with revising the concepts and revising the error log and after doing quizzes take a CAT again.

PRACTICE--MOCK--REVISE

what was your score? weak ares in quant/ verbal?

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Before providing specific advice, I’d like to learn some more about your situation with the GMAT. I have some additional questions:

1) How many times have you taken the actual GMAT? Please list the dates on which you’ve taken the GMAT, the total scores, and the quant, verbal, and IR scores, as well as how you were feeling while taking the tests.

2) How many practice GMAT tests did you take? Please list the dates on which you’ve taken any practice GMATs, the total scores, and the quant, verbal, and IR scores, as well as how you were feeling while taking the tests. Also, please tell me where these tests came from (ex: mba.com).

3) Please describe how you studied. How many hours a day did you study and for how many months?

4) To what programs will you be applying? What are the deadlines for these programs?

5) By when would you LIKE to take the GMAT? By when MUST you take the GMAT?

6) How many hours a day, on average, can you study between now and your next GMAT?

Once I learn some more about you, I can provide some more personalized advice.

You also may find my article helpful about how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.
