"Does not work" has no actual meaning.
Use fiddler or ie9 developer toolbar to check what url us actually called, what is passed, and what you get as result.

actually I don't know how to do in ajax call , it should take any parameter based on my action ??

Depend on your routing. But what I don't see is how the data is filled. Yous javascript snippet looks incomplete to me...

that is it , it is incomplete and I don't know what to do , and didn't find any related sample on web.

Try something like this:
<script type="text/javascript">
function DeleteFunction(guid){
        type: "POST",
        url: @Url.Action("Delete","Contact"),
        data: JSON.stringify({contactId: guid}),
        dataType: 'json',
        contentType: 'application/json; charset=utf-8',
        error: function (xhr) {
            alert('Error: ' + xhr.statusText);
        success: function (result) {
        async: true,
        processData: false

<a href="" onclick='DeleteFunction("@item.Id");'>Delete</a>
