This is typical behavior for a squash plant. They will produce mostly male (non-fruiting) blossoms early in the season and will gradually start to produce more female blossoms as the season progresses. Give it some time and you will see it start fruiting.

It's also possible that you have a pollinator problem and you may need to hand pollinate. These articles will help with that:
