      when my well pump turns on it the pressure switch will click on and off till it finally kicks on. Is this caused by worn contacts in the pressure switch or is it some other problem???

      Could be worn contacts, could be a broken bladder in captive air tank, also a clogged line from pump head to switch. Depleted air in bladder.

      Pull of switch cover and watch how contacts act when started up. If alot of cross-arcing happens, this needs to be replaced.

      It’s called short cycling and idicates low air pressure in the tank. It’s very hard on pump motors and the electric bill.
