Connect your iPad to a wall outlet with the supplied charger.  Not all laptops, including some MacBook Pros have enough power on the USB bus to charge an iPad.

It can be charged via the USB port if the port is high power...most laptops will have only one port that is high power so you need to either try each port to see if it will charge, or check the laptop specifications to see if they show a high power USB port. The iPad needs a 10 watt port.
