Take off the aerator on the end of the spout and run the water. Clean off the aerator, or get a new one, and reinstall. If you see a bunch of white chalky looking stuff let us know.

the part on the faucet where the water is supposed to come out is called and aerator and it should screw off. do that and then see if water comes out. if it does then the aerator needs cleaned or replaced. if not then you may need to call a plumber

We do not know WHICH nuts you took off, so we cannot tell you if that was the proper thing to do. The water line does NOT have a breaker. You would be better off calling a plumber before you take the wrong thing apart and break something.

did you turn the water off to the faucet before this problem started? if so then your stops may ned replaced/repaired as the rubber washers may have come off/apart and became debris lodged in the valve or pipe thus not allowing water to flow to the faucet

it has to be the aerator then. it would be a freak situation for both the hot and cold lines to clog at the exact same time at the same faucet.

you could have some debris in the faucet itself but 99% of the time this problem is a clogged aerator
