You will have to use FTP in order to access your files and deactivate your plugins and  see if this is what’s causing the problem . Rename the plugins folder under wordpress->wp-content->plugins (to pluginsOld)
Then see if you can login to your admin. If it works, change the pluginsold folder back to plugins. Then start re-activating your plugins one at a time until you find the one that is causing the problem. Now using FTP again delete the problematic plugin’s folder from the wp-content->plugins folder
