have the battery tested, also check inside the distributor cap for corrosion, make sure you can get spark cuz it sounds like it wants to turn over. if you have to replace to starter, it's just two bolts on the top side of the transmission, very fast...

Try turning on your radio or your head lights. Do you radio power up? Are you headlights dim? This can tell you if your battery is dead (or weak). Seek out jumper cables and have a friend "jump" your car. If your car starts let you car run for a few minutes before you turn it off (this allows your alternator to charge your battery). If you battery is completely dead, then you will have to replace it.
