First, check the battery and starter cables for their tightness or free of corrosion and physical damaged.

a 3/4 charge battery is 12.50 volts
A discharge battery is 11.75 volts.
A battery under a cranking load and it is reading less than 7 volts,it will be a recycled ( junk ) battery.

Local auto parts stores will test your battery for free of charge.

Yes Pammie, that would be a good guess. Check your battery cables for cleanliness and tightnes at the posts, also examine your fan belt to be sure not worn out.
