Start up poor

When I first start the car, the engine seems to struggle to fire up and tick over / It sounds horrible etc

But after about 5 seconds, it seems to have coughed it through and then runs fine?

What could it be?
The previous owner said it just needs a service and nes glow plugs?

Cheers

If the glowplug light comes back on after starting then one or more plugs is down, if not, suspect air leaking into the clear plastic pipes.
