The most important thing to do is to get an idea whether you want to work in the field. Do you enjoy working one on one closely with people? Do you get along with people well? Are you able to critically analyse health information? Are you a well-disciplined person with an interest in health and fitness? Volunteer at PT clinics, ask PTs questions and get as much exposure as you can until you feel certain that you want to do it. If not then don't.
Most physical therapy programs require prerequisite coursework to be completed before being accepted into a program. Usually this includes college courses in biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and calculus. Some programs also require a basic statistics course and some psychology coursework.
