No. Check battery voltage. Suspect weak or undersized battery.

the gauge sits just under 14v when i first got the car i was sitting at a light and i was holding the breaks and noticed that the gauge was just above 8 i think. then i let the breaks go and gave it some gas and it came back up to about 13v.

Sounds like alternator.

Try cleaning both ends of your battery cables.
