Explanation:
more context, please !

1) si, adverb = answer to a negative question

Ex : "Est-ce que tu n'as pas un crayon à me prêter ? "
"Don't you have a pencil to lend me" ?

Answer : "Si, bien sûr !"
"Yes, of course I do !"

2) subordinating conjunction = introduces a subordinate clause

Ex : "Si j'étais riche, je ferais le tour du monde"
"If I were rich, I would go round the world"
