Starting to notice some trouble starting my car.

MY car usually turns on as soon as i turn the key and i can hear it go vrm vrm like two or three times and then it will start. This last week, it goes vrm vrm vrm vrm vrm vrm vrm vrm vrm and then starts. Once it does, it does work okay though. I want to ge tthe problem fixed before i have any trouble with it, if its anything at all. The battery voltage is the only thing i have checked thus far and its good at like 12 volts while off and 14 volts while on. My alternator seems to be working as well. Anything else ican check?

Check the fuel pressure. If the check valve in the fuel pump starts to fail, it allows fuel pressure to bleed off too fast, and sometimes causes harder starting.
