Alternator Problem??

Hi All

I thing I have a alternator problem but im not sure and I want know what You thing before I go to the garrage...

last week I`ve got a "low voltage" warning on the dash. I have charged the battery and it was ok for a week..I thought that was to easy and I was right after driving for a while yesterday the warning came up again...but it wasnt constant as before...
I`ve noticed that as soon as I go over 2000rpm the warning dissappears and if I go below 2000rpm warning comes up. The car is running ok, no sign of flat battery.
I have checked the battery voltage: engine off-12.3v
engine on-12.67v
over 2000rpm-13.8v - 14v
Its the second day today and the warning comes and go according to the RPMs
I have done a few things around my alfa my self saving me from being ripped by a garrage, but I dont know much about electrics (yet)

So Any idea what could cause my problem and maybe how to fix it will be really appreciated.
