Problem Starting

Hey Guys.

I went out to start my car today and when i turned over the engine, it ran for a second then stalled. i started it again and the same thing. the third time with a little bit of gas it ran. i got to work and all the fluids are okay. and when i started it up again after stopping it, it started fine.

Could this be a warning sign for a clogged fuel filter? i've never had starting problems ever, and its also not cold out side.

Thanks.
