You are leaving out way to much info.  Is this an over wintered hive or a package or nuc?  Do you have brood?  Is there a queen?  What is going on?

Also please excuse the typos.  My iPad autocorrect can be brutal.

As mentioned I would need more information to say.
If there is robbing you will see dead bees and the comb will be in tatters.
Check the foundations in the brood box, could be a starving situation.
No pollen coming in is a red flag something is wrong.

OK, Did you over winter in two deeps? When you did the inspection how much population did you have?
What makes you think you need to requeen? Robbing has some distinct indicators.
More information is needed.
