Car having issues starting

Today I got up ready for school went to my car got inside and began to turn and the car wouldn't start. I had no idea what it was and I couldn't look into it because I was going to be late. Today I came back and it had issues starting but I held the key for about 6-8 seconds and it started. Now when it starts I have to hold for about 3-4 seconds. Would this be because of the battery? Two weeks ago I left the headlights on and forgot to turn them off and I had to jump start the car. Could it be a result of that?

Re: Car having issues starting

im guessing your battery might be on its way out. just take it to an autopart store and have them test it...

Battery or alternator not charging your battery.

If I get it tested would it be free? Crap even more money to put into this car. :\
