Car having trouble starting, HELP!

So 2 days ago, I wanted to get the stang out for a drive and fill her up with some gas. When I got into my car, I heard the starter trying to "roll over" and it was a rapid clicking sound. So I hooked up my battery charger and put the gas run off for a while. 36 hours later I take off the battery charger and start up my car. It took it about 5 seconds to catch and then turn on, but when it turned on, the car reset itself (clock set to 12:00, AM radio turned on, mileage gauge displays 0 miles driven) and its been doing this ever since. My headlights still work when the battery is low and the battery is about 2 months old. Also take into consideration that it is cold where I am at (this happened last year when it was cold, not during the summer). So what should I do? Any suggestions before I take it in? Going to get the battery tested here in a few so any thoughts/answers would be awesome

If I had money and was the gambling type, I'd bet you its a bad battery.
