Check the voltage with the engine off - it should be around 12.5 volts if charged. Put the battery on a charger if it's low. If the voltage looks good, start the engine and check battery voltage again - it should be around 14- 14.5 volts. If it's low, check the serpentine belt - it might be worn. Get the alternator tested and replaced if bad.

it means your alternator is either not charging or the battery is getting weak.

It means that the alternator is not charging the battery. Everyone knows what a battery looks liker - not as many know what a alternator look like. Here's a battery and alternator testing video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cip-dmaTTiQ
