You should not start to invest first. You should save up more money.
Make sure you save up at least 6 month of monthly expense as an emergency fund. Anything excess then you have the right to invest in the market.
I answered a similar question on another thread! I would recommend saving up for your emergency fund first. Assuming you already have that emergency fund in place and any excess is for investments:
With $0: Start investing in your own financial knowledge:
Read forums for financial knowledge. SeekingAlpha, MotleyFool, Seedly etc.
Read quality news: Financial Times etc (subject to paywall)
Read books on both Value Investing and investments in general. Assuming you are based in Singapore, our National Library is a good place to start.
With $100, if you really want to start investing with small sums: You can start investing with as little as $100 with Monthly Investment Plans for a start. Some to look at are:
POSB Invest Saver
OCBC Blue Chip Investment Plan (BCIP)
Maybank Kim Eng Monthly Investment Plan
Phillip Share Builder Plan
