Sound's like a pulley seized up remove your belt and see if there is a pulley that won't spin. My guess is the a/c compressor seized up. Let me know what you find.

Thanks so does that mean my car will be fine if I keep the air off? Should I keep the heat off too? I put some oil in it & kept the air off on the way home & it seemed to do fine

Let's do this with the engine off see if the center of the a/c clutch turn's freely or if it's locked up?If the a/c compressor did lock up even if you have the a/c off the compressor clutch could lock up again and leave you stranded. Let me know what you find.
