Hi,
i think that you have some missing arguments in your equation. I tried to
repair it (q->q[t], p->p[t] etc.)and here is the output:
p[t_] := Sin[t];
q[t_] := Cos[t];
k = 10.;
t0 = 0;
t1 = 6Pi;
poc0 = {1, 2};
soln = {x[t],
y[t]} /. NDSolve[{x'[t] == k*
Sqrt[p'[t]^2 + q'[
t]^2]*(p[t] - x[t])/
Sqrt[(p[t] - x[t])^2 + (q[t] - y[t])^2], y'[t] == k*
Sqrt[p'[t]^2 + q'[t]^2]*(y[t] - q[t])/
Sqrt[(p[t] - x[t])^2 + (q[t] - y[
t])^2], x[t0] == poc0[[1]], y[t0] ==
poc0[[2]]}, {x[t], y[t]}, {t, t0, t1}][[1]]
