Most like you’re battery is on its way out. Take it to a parts store and have them load test it. If you’re lucky it will just be a bad battery.

If they say the battery is good then you have an issue with your charging system.

This Sticky thread starts with some battery tests that you can do yourself, then maybe take it in to be load tested...
