PMP Exam is not an easy by any means. Many candidates fail the exam on their first try. According to a guesstimate, about 30-40% people fail the exam on the first try. So, you don't need to get disheartened. Rather use the experience as a springboard for your next big leap and pass the exam.
You can take the exam upto 3 times within one year from your application approval date. If you fail the examination three times within the one-year eligibility period, you must wait one year from the date of the last examination you took to reapply for the credential.
You need to pay a reexamination fee for each retake.
The reexamination fees also varies depending upon whether you are a PMI member.
