Cranking But No Start Issues

I believe my fuel pump is on its way out. I was driving the car earlier, everything was fine, I went in the store maybe 20 minutes. When I came out the car would crank, but not start unless I kept my foot on the gas, it would stay running this way. I am not getting a CEL or any codes. I could not afford to tow it, I was 23 miles from home, so I used some duct tape I had and taped down the clutch switch so I could start it easier, and off I went. I made it all the way home and now the issue has stopped it will start and idle just fine. Am I correct in thinking the pump is on its way out? I still have nearly a full tank of gas and would like to use most of it now that it is running before I tackle the pump.
