I have a renault megane scenic 16v 1.4 2004 and as I hold clutch down to press the start button it cuts out for me to keep pushing start button till it runs properly, is this a normal thing or does it need taken to be looked at

Not normal.
At a guess, it might be worth your while taking the crank sensor out and cleaning it.
They get dirty and cannot 'see' the crank shaft so the car doesn't know when to add fuel or sparks.

Have you tried, car in neutral, and using brake pedal only ..
should not need to hold the start button, its press and let go, the engine will crank until it starts running..
