Whining upon startup Commander

I have 2 issues that may be related. When I try to start my Commander, it takes several turns to actually start. Battery is less than 2 years old and I don't hear a clicking noise. Its just dead silence when I turn it over. Eventually after 4-5 times at starting it turns over, then I hear a whining noise even before its put into gear.

I had the power steering fluid checked, didn't seem to be the issue.

Any suggestions?
