I would suggest you get your battery and alternator LOAD tested . Most diy stores like Halfords wll check usually FOC . Meanwhile , try jump starting the car or charging the battery .

I,d check the tension on the Alternator drive belt as it,ll make that noise if slack and not tensioned properly , causing the battery not to be charged even though the ignition warning light may not come on.
