    It depends on what you want to say. For example, when you want to talk about an idea, you can say "It's an interesting thought".
    I can say "What are your thoughts, alynrahim?" and it means that "What are your feelings/opinions?".
    If you talk about "The act or process of thinking" it's uncountable so you cannot say "Thoughts".

    I can say "What are your thoughts, alynrahim?" and it means that "What are your ideas about something?" (no full stop after a question mark)

    I agree with EnglishLearner's first suggestion. However, "What are your thoughts?" doesn't have to mean "What are your ideas?" It can mean "What are your feelings/opinions?"
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
