Bond order is found by counting the number of bonds. So if it is a triple bond, there are three bonds connecting the two elements together. The bond order of H2 is equal to 1 because to connect two hydrogens, you need a single bond.
The bond order is determined by the number of valence electrons between the atoms as well as the formal charge. This will help you determine whether you need to form a single, double, or triple bond. The bond order is then just 1,2 or 3 corresponding to single, double, and triple bond.
