Step by step on how to start bodybuilding and building muscle:

You're thin and slim, possibly an ectomorph body type... That would mean right off the bat that your training should be using rep ranges in the lower to mid range of about 6, 8 or 10 reps for your workout sets.

Monitor your diet. You say you are a vegetarian. That's
perfect. Eat every few hours.

You are able to have eggs? That's even better! Eggs are literally the best protein source that nature has to offer.

You being a vegetarian means you are most likely eating nutritious foods -- Fruits, Vegetables, etc.. But being slim as you are, and possibly being an ectomorph body type, you will have to pick the calories up a bit if you are ever going to get your body to start producing muscle mass.

So... More eggs, more beans, more legumes, and more grains.

Should you join a gym? Yes. Pick a gym that has a lot of free weights: Dumbbells, barbells, and several weight benches to choose from is also good to look out for. Look for flat benches, incline benches, and decline benches.

Should you take supplements? You could. A multivitamin, maybe some creatine could be okay.

Meal Tips:
Eat 1 hour before workout
Eat immediately after a workout
Eat every few hours
Eat whole unprocessed carbs
Eat protein with every meal.

Workout Tips:
Weight train 30 to 60 min
Train 3 or 4 days a week
Work 1 or 2 muscle groups per workout
Use mostly free weights
Shock your body every few weeks with entirely brand new workouts
