Harmonica Harmonica

I play guitar using a capo, I need to know what kind of harmonica to buy to match the fret Im playing on. Help?

Everything Magnolia said was correct, however, his first sentence really dealt with answering your question the best. You need to know what key you are playing the song in.
If you forget about the capo for a minute, and just pretend that the nut is the capo and you are in standard tuning E, A, D, G, B, E. What key are you playing in?
There is no answer, because you can play a song in any key with no capo on the guitar. The Capo simply acts as a movable nut making the fret it is on the 0 fret. So if you played a song in open tuning with no capo using the chords G, C, and D, it would be exactly the same as if you put a capo on the guitar on the third fret and played the chords E, A and B.
Going back to what Magnolia said, if you played a song in C with open tuning, and then used the same chords all 2 frets up and having the capo on fret 2, the key would change from C to D.
That should answer the question about the capo, HOWEVER...
if someone is playing a Harmonica, Harmonica's typically come in 1 key. Most players use a different harmonica for different keys. So, the Harmonica player (you or someone else) should ask the guitarist, what key are you playing this song in or vice versa.
