jeep won't turn over

Let's start by saying i'm not mechanically inclined at all so i'll try to give as many details as possible.
When turn the key to accessories, everything comes on (all dash lights). when i try to turn it over i either get a very slow turn over (really struggling) or a fast click.
A few times it has turned over and i have had to keep my foot on the gas or it will stall out.

That being said, when i boost it, it starts up fine but once shut off and leave it sit for a while, i go through the same thing over again. My first thoughts are it's just the battery but, the part that confuses me is when it does start on it's own and won't run without my foot on the gas.

now that your confused, please help lol thanks

Not completely dead...but it could have a dead cell or it could be just low due to something draining it.
Right now you need to re-charge battery and test it or have it tested.
