There should be a knob on the left of your steering wheel that lowers and brightens the dash lights. Have you noticed if someone turned it down?

It is almost certainly your alternator. I just had the same issue with my camry. I your car isn't producing enough electricity so it is prioritizing your head lights at night, and when there isn't as much of a current draw it is all in the dash to come on. I would recommend having your car looked at very soon.
