Newbie needs help...

I have a 2008 V6 convertible...roll your eyes if you must, I just drive it, don't do repairs. I do regular maintenance. Lately, when I start the car, it acts for a moment like the battery is going dead then comes to life. Today, it took a moment for the lights on the dash to pop on... I noticed when i rev'd the engine the heater wad stronger or weaker with more or less gas....Alternator? Starter? None of the above?
