Hi Mary, 

We've addressed this topic many times before. The answer is specific to your personal financial situation, which no one here knows. I suggest reading the following articles as a starting point: https://www.creditkarma.com/article/5StepsTowardsHealthyCredit or https://www.creditkarma.com/article/build-your-credit-from-scratch.
