Car stutters ONLY on startup

Evening ladys and gents. I have a 2005 Pontiac G6 4dr with 42k miles on it. I purchased this car with 28k miles on it in California and have since moved to Indiana. My car "stutters" when I try and start it, and I just thought no big deal it starts always just stutters a bit. Today it stuttered and died and I was like wow. I tried it again and it did the same thing, but I tried it 10 minutes later and it fired right up with no stutter. I want to resolve this issue A.S.A.P as winter is creeping up. The battery was just replaced at 32k miles and the fuel pump seems to be working fine as I can hear it click. My guess as of right now is the timing could possibly be off?? Anyone out there with a solid answer let me know. You can go into depth as I am a car enthusianst and own a '70 GTO thats pretty much money. (Also G6's ride like shit) just in case ya didnt know.
