Alright so i have a 2000 chevy malibu when i start it. It struggles a bit but starts. Already have new starter alternator sparkplugs . if i put the car on for 5 seconds then turn all the way to start it starts better. WAs thinking water pump. Any ideas?

What? You are all over the place with this. Many engine you can start and run without a water pump and other thing you mentioned at all for a moment anyway and are not involved in initial start up.
Get codes read and test fuel pressure noting both if in spec and that it hold pressure. When you said it works better holding it longer suggests fuel delivery and pressure are the reason and should be able to see that if checked,

strongly suggest you have a professional look at the vehicle, It will surely be cost effective, parts and dubious repairs.
