Yes it sounds like your alternator might be bad. Check voltage from alternator while car is running it should be putting out around 14 volts. First check all battery connections to make sure that they are clean and tight. Also the negative connections on frame and motor. If alternator is not charging to proper voltage remove it and have it tested.
