You need to give more context. Is this an OpenStreetMap-specific question? Are you using a library that uses OpenStreetMap? What do you mean by "current location"? Who is going to win the French presidential election?

OSM is just a big pile of data; it can't help you with your current location any more than a book that I'm currently reading can help me with mine.

What you probably want to ask is "how do I create a web site that asks the web browser that it is running in for the user's current location". A quick web search suggests that there is lots of help out there for that. It's not really a question that has anything to do with OpenStreetMap.
