Contactor or other issue?

So here's my problem. My Amana central air unit was making a clicking noise. I figured it was something rattaling inside. I took the service panel off and noticed my contactor was disengaging periodically. Sometimes every 5 seconds, sometimes once every 30 seconds. Pretty much randomly. I have no way of testing voltage of anything. Has anyone ever had this type of issue or know any ideas. My unit is approx. 4 years old is all.

OR there is a voltage issue or short. Call a pro if you cant check voltage.
