does not always want to start

Ok so as of recent I have noticed an issue that seems random in its happenings , I get in turn the key and nothing, not click click click, not trying to kick over if anything just barely one clank. After several turns of the key it start right up with no hesitation. I am thinking maybe the teeth on the starter are going, or maybe the starter/relay are going bad? any thoughts, could this be something im not even thinking of? thanks in advance.

If there's no click I would suspect the relay. It's located on the starter itself.

The only sound I get , and it doesn't happen every time is a small metalic clunk not loud, it doesn't sound damaging just like someone is lightly taping on the starter with a piece of metal. but it only does it once with the turn of the key and not all the time.

Try cleaning your battery cables/terminals. may or may not help, but definately wont hurt.
