2004 Saturn Ion 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 72000 miles

When I turn my engine on there is a constant clicking noise. Then when I hit the gas the clicking noise becomes more rapid. I was at a red light yesterday and the car shut off, it would only stay on if I held the gas pedal. Is this the battery or alternator? Is there a way to check and see which one it is?

Im gonna say the battery is not up to par, but that could be because the alternator, isnt charging it correctly. I will send you some videos and info on how to check both.
