Could be a worn drive belt, a noisy accessory bearing or something major. Try to determine the source with the engine running and somebody gradually stepping on the pedal while you look under the hood or have it checked before the repair gets more expensive.

Would a head gasket make a noise like this? I was told it could be a loose pulley or something

Head gaskets dont make noise. The longer you wait to get it looked at the more likely something will fail preventing the engine from running.

My oil light came on this morning and it turned off on me when I came to a stop. But it did start right back up

Did you check the engine oil level when cold?
How many miles since you changed the engine oil and filter?

It had been a while since it was done, this car was given to me, so I’m not too sure. I know that they changed it about a month ago
