Macbook pro is taking longer to start up

My macbook pro stays on the start-up white screen longer than it used to and seems to be running just a little bit slower than normal. Is there anything I could do or any good programs that I can use to clean up my mac? Thanks in advance!

Before doing so though, you should make a backup, then test your drive to be sure it isn't failing. Try using Disk Utility to "Verify" the disk. SMART Utility has a free trial and might be useful, though there is some debate over how effective it is at detecting early signs of drive failure. Onyx can check the SMART status also, though SMART Utility claims to be more thorough. There are other utilities for checking drive integrity, like DiskWarrior, that can do a much more thorough job and are highly respected, but pricey.
