Katniss thinks she can't win they Games because she is facing 23 other tributes. She tells herself she has to win for Prim, but she knows she has to go up against the Career tributes who have been training for the Games since they were little.

Because many districts, like 1 and 2, have been training for the Hunger Games their whole lives and it's extremely rare for a tribute from the 3 poorest districts-10, 11, and 12- to win. But Katniss's mentor, Haymith Abernathy, was from District 12 and he won The Hunger Games, but that was 24 years before Katniss became a tribute.

In the first Hunger Games Katniss does not believe she can win because she thinks that she is to weak. She knows that The Careers have been trained since childhood to become Tributes, and knows that they will have the advantage of having good sponsors. She does not think about winning unil she and Rue have blown up the food. Then she begins to think about actually winning.

In Cathching Fire, Katniss believes that she is destined to die, and that The Captiol has made it their mission to not let her live. She does not care, though, because she has already promised to do everything to save Peeta, even to die.

Because all of the other tributes from other districts are much bigger, smarter, and better fed then her.

She fears having to kill the other tributes including Peeta to survive? She then questions whether or not she should sacrifice her life to keep him alive

Why is Katniss unsure if she should be coached with Peeta Mellark?

Katniss (who is very judgemental and is bad at figuring out people) is very skeptical of Peeta, and believes that he will just want to see how good Katniss is and use what he can against her. Also there is the probability of Peeta slowing down Katniss's training (this second part I added really isn't in the book).
