If the bolt is stripped out it needs to be replaced. Not having all the bolts on the alternator bracket could eventually vibrate enough to cause some problems, even loosing the serpentine belt and then you are stuck wherever you break down. If the bolt is not stripped you will need to either get someone to re-tap the hole or buy a kit and do it yourself. You can also check to see if there is any debris in the hole itself.
