I'd stop driving it IMMEDIATELY !!!
You need to remove the driveshaft and find out what is going on.
It's possible that you have a bad U-Joint...

+1

Probably a bad U-Joint. If that drive shaft breaks while going down the road, well hopefully you'll still look good enough for an open casket viewing.

Safety first!

Is it constant or just when ur slowly starting to go forward? I feel like I might have the same issue but it only does it when I'm taking off n as soon as I get up to a decent speed it stops. If u figure it out pls update! My car is off the road for winter but I want to get it fixed as soon as I put if back on the road

Don't drive it. Put your car on a lift and rotate your wheels manually to see what is going on.
