IDSKoT Starter relay is getting stuck, probably. Swap out the relays and try again.

New Jeep owner, starter problem

When i turn my key over, it starts the engine fine, but it keeps grinding like i am holding the key in the start position, and it won't stop until i turn the key back a little bit... is it sticking or what? Does anyone know how to help?
