Replace the belts. Drive for a while. If you are still having electrical issues (99% sure you won't) then go from there.
In other words, fix the known problem first, to see if that's the only problem.

To replace it you're going to have to loosen the bolts on your alternator anyway (and for your serpentine belt, your A/C compressor and/or your water pump as well). The hardest part of the job is just figuring out where and what to loosen.
You don't have to loosen any bolts on a serpentine belt system to replace the belt. The belt tensioner moves. You but a wrench or ratchet on the tensioner and move it to loosen and remove the belt . The tensioner is spring loaded, so you have to hold it in place while taking the belt off.

If, IF, the belt you are refering to as a serpintine belt, can be verified as being your timing belt (shown above in blue), and its condition is suspect, it would be in your best interest to change it as soon as you can. I reccomend the Gates racing "blue" belts (like mine in the above pic) for EJ's, they come marked so resetting the belt in time with the cam gears is a breeze. PM me and I can e-mail you pics with a walk through or can post up here.
Especially on a Subaru, they seem to shit themselves for fun, so giving them an excuse to blow up is a bad idea.
