Yeah, loose or perished alternator belt. It's safe to drive but if it snaps you have a limited time to get home before the battery runs out. Get it looked at and replaced/tightened asap.

It also doubles as fan/waterpump belt. If it snaps you'll lose the engine cooling. Coolant will start boiling after a couple of miles. Been there, done that. Nearly killed it. Can still be driven carefully, watching the temperature gauge and stopping to cool down if needed. At least I suppose so, I didn't try.
