It's white's move and the king can't move.
Why was this game drawn? I should have won it I think.

Welcome to the site. What you described is the definition of stalemate, not checkmate. The enemy king not being able to move anywhere (while it's not attacked) is stalemate. That's why the game was drawn.
For a checkmate, you'd need to trap the king and be attacking it at the same time.
If it seems weird that stalemate is a draw, you're not alone. The 3rd world champion Capablanca argued that stalemate be considered a win. Nevertheless, the rules of chess dictate otherwise.
You will need to understand when we win/lose or draw in chess. The result is positive for someone when:
Draw is when:
Checkmate is the situation where the opponent's king is checked by a piece of us, but it has no free squares to go (he is trapped). The game is over then.
Stalemate is the situation where the opponent's king is not checked by a piece of us, but it has no free squares to go (he is trapped). The game is immediately draw then.
Please note that stalemate happens when only opponent moves; he has no other piece to move and the reason mentioned above.
