Toyota Rav4 having trouble starting- Starter or engine issue?

My good ol' 2004 Rav4 (180k) is having some issues starting/ cranking. Especially in the mornings, it takes two turns to start the car. During the day it doesn't hesitate but takes a bit longer for the car to start when I turns the key.
I just had the battery replaced and did a fuel injection system cleaned.

Could it be the starter or something with the engine?

What do you mean by "it takes two turns"? Do you have to go through two cyclings of the ignition key before the starter will engage or do you have to run the starter longer than usual for the engine to start?
