I would jack car up and inspect as soon as possible. Push, pull and spin tire. Do you hear or feel anything? If not remove tire and inspect everything associated with wheel in the area.

If I jack up the car, will I see what's wrong or do I have to take things apart? I'm not sure what I'm looking for. :(

I'm not sure if I take things apart if I can put them back together the right way

Only thing I might would take off is the tire. Leave everything else on. Just inspect for loose or broke items. If you really uneasy jacking up vehicle I would just take it to a certified tire shop for inspection. But either way I would get this looked at ASAP. Noises/problems in the wheel area can possibly lead to serious or deadly accidents.

Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it. It's hard doing things like this on your own. I'll see what I find when I lift the car up. Wish me luck. Hope I don't hurt myself in the process ;)
