    It shouldn't really sound like either but perhaps it sounds closer to W.
    To make an R sound, start with your upper front teeth touching the inside of your bottom lip.
    The R sound does not require you to touch the tip of your tongue anywhere. (The L sound does)
    The W sound does not require you to touch your tongue or teeth anywhere.
    Good luck
