The database you are trying to query isn't accessible. It's in recovery status. Check the error log to see how much percentage is already recovered so you may know how much you need to wait to the database being available.

First of all the database only goes to that state if something interrupted abruptly (server crash, disk loss or someone stopped inadvertently the SQL Server instance).
If it's already like that for 2 days means that some error is preventing the database to come online. I would check for disk issues.

i had try to add new log file but i can't able.
Don't do that. Also don't restart SQL Server or even the server.
I just don't know what you did in these last 2 days so I don't even know the state of your databases.

From when are the last backups that you have?

I mean backup (BAK files). Do you perform regular backups, right? Where do you store it?

If the database is on recovery pending status since last 2 days for sure the backup wouldn't run, so you have the last good known database status in your backup. You need to restore it to solve your problem.
