Next time you start it turn it to "on" and give it about 10 seconds before you turn to "start". This allows time for the fuel pressure to build up before you try to start it.

If that improves it then it's likely just the check valve in the fuel pump allowing the fuel system to depressurize itself overnight. It's really no big deal if that is what it is. Just pause between on and start. Sometimes it will clear itself of whatever is causing the leak and go back to normal.
