Default Tensioner pulley i think?

So I heard a low squeaking or whistle from my engine when i accelerate; could barely hear it over my exhaust but its there. I have no idea what it could be.

I checked under my hood, and realized it may be coming from my belts. I looked and saw my tensioner pulley wobbling a little bit.

First, what could that whistling be?
Second, Is a slightly wobbling tensioner pulley a bad thing?
Third, do you think the tensioner pulley could be the cause of the squeak?

I really dont have the money to bring it to my mechanic or fix it for another month at least, would this be okay to hold off and continue driving it for a month?
