Use cluster test to see if it's battery, alt, or both. The alt isn't a charger, so if you've had a bad battery for a while, the alt could go bad.
Voltage off should be around 12 V and on around 14V.
Your starter isn't an issue at all.
I'm thinking just battery, but you need to check the voltage to begin.
Search Cluster test.
