Need to check battery connections, take to auto parts store ,have check battery and alternative, also check main surpentine belt. Could be one of these or all three.also check battery ground.

Check battery to be sure its in good condition take it to Advanced Auto Parts they will check the alternator which it sounds like it maybe.They will check all if not could be starter going bad.
