We're going to need a little more info than that to help you.

1. What did you do/image did you save or open last time in Gimp when clicking "new" worked?

2. What version of gimp are you using (latest build is 2.8.6)

3. What is your operating system? (mac, win, linux/distros...)

I or someone will get back to you as soon as possible with better help after you fulfill at least #2 & #3 & welcome to the forums ^_^ !

RE: my gimp isnt working
Cool, In haven't found the File > New issue yet, could be a bug with the mac build.

I'll try to update you if I can

Do you have any of these builds of mac in this link. You can try one of these if you haven't already:
http://gimp.lisanet.de/Website/Download.html

EDIT/ UPDATE: I wasn't able to find anything close enough to your gimp crashing when you click new.

Did gimp throw up any error messages before it closed? If its the default "Program stopped responding & needs to be closed" look for a small "more details" click that and paste what it says replacing your name[if you care] in the folder names with /username/ if visible.

It could be a memory issue, go into Edit > Preferences > Environment and either decrease or increase some of the settings(making sure you leave enough room for the System)

Another thing that can fix most problems is reseting your gimp profile, how-to here: http://gimpforums.com/thread-what-is-my-...-i-find-it

Hopefully one of those works, did it work when you first installed gimp 2.8.6? Does 2.6 work if the above things don't work, try downgrading to 2.6 temporarily & file a bug report with your version of mac and gimp 2.8.6
