First, replace both bulbs. I think that will take care of it.
If not could be corroded headlight contacts or bad switch, etc. Most likely bulbs. Suggest PIAA Extreme white xenon blubs as replacements. Much more expensive but much more light. Approx $50 for the low beam and maybe as much as $80 for the high beam. Now, if you want to go to HID, you will have even better light, but with some additional cost for the parts plus some shop labor unless you can self-install. You should be able to simply change bulbs in 5 minutes or so.
(And just wait until you read the resulting comments as to my opinion of xenon bulbs!)
