I drove the car few times, short distances, then suddenly the next day I start the engine and bang! I get this noise. Now, while the engine is running, the noise gets even worse contrarily to how it was before...

Yea, when my pulley went bad, the noise was intermittent at first, but then it got louder and pretty much constant.
