Alternator? Need Help!

So I drove 4 hours saturday to trade some parts with a guy. While driving with cruise control on, it would suddenly drop a few miles per hour and i would have to reset it. When this happened a light on the right side of the cluster would flash really fast and i couldnt tell which one it was. Anyway I got back fine. This morning I started my car and let it warm up for 10 min like ususal. When I went out and got in I noticed my headlights went out before i got in and then I ran the wipers to get rid of the due adn then my radio started to flash on and off and my "BRAKE, ABS and (!) lights were illuminated along with my traction control light. When I reved it up all the lights turned off then when it cam back down to idle they went on again, so I started to back out and then the whole car died and will not start. I tried to jump it, but it wont even click. I hear a clicking noise coming from the empty space in this picture. The only thing I can think of is maybe my alternator died saturday and my battery lasted until this morning when I tried to drive it?
