Doesn't matter. some of those batteries sit for awhile and will loose charge over time. pull it and have it charged.
if everything dims or loses power and you hear nothing but a clicking, the battery is week or has a bad cell plain and simple.
No amount of screwing with the starter, fuses, nor anything else is going to fix a weak battery.
Dont trust the "I just bought the battery" thought unless they put it on the charger and checked it BEFORE you took it.

If it were a bad starter it would either turn over very slowly or it would do nothing at all. but if you're insistant its the starter, pull it and have it checked, alot easier to pull a battery than a starter and have it checked tho...
