Yes safe to drive, probably just lost the refrigerant in the AC, just keep it off until fixed. The AC pulley is actually on it own bearing and is just a pulley. The AC clutch only kicks in by a magnetic field to stick to the pulley to rotate the compressor. So just keep it off, but still doesn't hurt much if it kicks in.
