Signs of a starter on its way out??

Hey guys, I occasionally get an issue when starting my truck first thing in the morning, and even then only some days.

I turn the key and it turns over once then stops, then tries to turn over again, then stops, then maybe a click or two, then it turns over completely fine and runs. This all occurs over 1-2 seconds, no more, and while the key is always forward. It has not failed to start, just displays those issues then starts up just fine. Starts fine the rest of the day.

It does this whether I hold the key fully forward or try the one touch start feature.

Batteries show full voltage as well.
