That's a water pump.
You're getting water at the faucet, right? Open the faucet a little and put your hand on the pump, or just listen- it will certainly be running just as soon as the faucet is opened.
New, higher pressure pumps are available for under a hundred bucks. $50 will buy you a standard ShurFlo. They are easy to install.
Not a giant investment- oh, and check ALL the faucets- sometimes a clogged screen or broken internals will cause low flow out of an individual faucet.
