Hi there. It sounds like you may have a compressor that is about to lock up. Sometimes when they go bad, the bearings will lock up putting a strain on the engine. Eventually it will lock up completely and break the serpentine belt. I would recommend have a technician come out and inspect the air conditioning system and replace the compressor if said it needs to be repaired.
