Yeah, it could be the starter, can't tell without testing. With a no-load test, the starter may work fine, then go the other direction when you put a load on it. Some of the national brand autostores will check starters for free. You just have the hassle of removing the starter and taking it down there, if everything checks, you replace the starter again.
If I can't get the starter to act correctly on the vehicle, I take it off, lay it on the ground, use jumper cables for a no load test. If the starter won't do anything, I think it is the solenoid or starter.
