Most likely it's the battery, especially if it's still on the original one. Only way to know for sure is to check the charging system with a voltmeter and to check for parasitic draw with an ammeter after the car is shut off. But if you are on the original battery, it's unlikely to last much longer anyhow. I got an exact fit replacement for my 2006 9-3 at Wal*Mart for about $99. You probably won't find a better deal on a quality battery that fit's without modifying the battery cover anywhere else.
The NoTP on the display means No Traffic Report available on the radio. Pressing the TP button on the radio will give the same message. Because the radio was essentially rebooted when the battery went dead, that message just happened to come up and likely has no significance to your problem.
