scenic 2 starting issues

Hi guys, ive got a 2000 scenic 1.9 tdi monaco which has developed starting problems

Im not sure if its a coincidence, but after the glow illumination light goes out, if i try and start it turns over and eventually flattens the battery unless i wait for a buzzing noise to stop first

Im not sure what it is, but if you turn the ignition on, theres a buzzing from the bonnet, im not sure if thats a fuel pump, or part of the heating system but if i wait for that noise to stop, it usally starts after 3 attempts

This is my first diesel car, so i know nothing about diesels

What i dont know is if the issues with the battery, the glow plugs or something else, i assume battery because if i put the starter charger on its fine, but it only ever does it when the cars been standing either over night or for a whole working day

any help would be appreciated
