Most of the time you can fix these just by removing the top cap. With the cap off,hold a rag over the top and turn on the water a little. You should get good flow of here, and also flush out any possible debris. Now just install a new seal washer in the cap and put it back on.

Probably sediment, but as you been advised...Just replace. They are cheap enough....
