Could be either one. Start with the obvious and make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight and make sure the battery is fully charged. If you have a volt meter, start by making sure you have 12.5 volts or better. next, check to see if you have B+ at both starter wires with the ignition in the start position when it's acting up. If you're good there, perform a voltage drop test across the ground. If that's good, then you have a starter issue.
