Default HELP ME QUIC, ENGINE KNOCK

On my way back from the bank i noticed that when i pulled to a stop light and stopped, i heard a knocing noise coming from my engine bay. I wasn't sure what it was. It was only making the noise when i wasn't giving it any throttle. So when i got home in the driveway, i just let it sit with the engine on, when the engine is on it did the knocking. I popped the hood and the sound sounded like it was coming from the front of the supercharger(by the belt) or the belt tensioner. What'* wrong? Please let me know as QUICK AS POSSIBLE!!!!

right at the tip of the nose by the supercharger, or the belt tensioner. Is it bad to drive on it?

I checked and it seems that i am pretty low on supercharger fluid. Could this be what is causing the knocking.
