Pontiac Grand am 98 se start problem

When i start my car it doesnt start. I have to tap my gas paddle a little to start. It cranks, but doesnt seem to start at the first try. After that it starts like i said giving it a tap on the gas pedal. It doesnt give me a problem in the morning, After that it does. Please help!!

How many seconds of cranking is required for it to start? How many miles on the engine? Are you the original owner?

It takes about 5 seconds. I dont know what you mean. Like i explained myself. I try to start the car. It doesnt recieve gas. It dies. I turn it on again and tap the gas pedal and starts . It has 137,000 miles on it. \Im not the orginal owner of the car.

Check engine light is not on, right. Car run fine after it starts, right. Problem appeared gradually, right. If right so far, then it may just need new spark plugs.
