Best way is to remove it, and take it for testing at any autoparts store. If defective, then you simply exchange for a rebuilt. Also make sure your battery cables to the starter-motor are not corroded

Problem: Starter failed shortly after installation.
Solution #1: Confirm that you purchased a starter designed to work with your engine's compression ratio. Engines with 11:1 or higher compression generally require a high-torque, gear-reduction starter. Otherwise, the engine will turn over slowly.
Solution #2: Check the position of your starter in relation to your headers. If your starter is continuously heat soaked from exhaust heat, chances are it will fail early. You'll either need a different starter design, or you'll have to install a starter heat shield with your next starter.
Solution #3: Clean the starter mounting surface. Most starters are grounded through the mounting block, and if there is excessive oil or paint on the block, the starter will have a faulty ground. This will cause the starter to pull excessive amps, making it overheat and wear out.
I hope this helps!
