Sounds like it. Before you drop a nice penny for a new one have the old one tested to be sure though.

Check your batteries too. If you can put a load tester on it.

check to make sure the nut that holds the wire that runs from the solinoid to the starter is tight. i have had it back off a couple times on me and it does pretty much what you describe. it will click but not turn over.
it is on top of the starter, its a pain to get at but worth a try before you replace the starter.

Sounds like it is doing almost the same thing mine was. Turned out it was the starter. It finally left me stranded....lol. Most autoparts stores have the setup to check batteries and starters in the vehicle. Have 'em check it out and then you will know for sure.
