Headlight dimming

I apologize in advance if this has already been asked. But when the headlights are on, and you use any one of the 4 power windows, the headlights dim out a little. Its nothing severe, but it scares me cause i have no idea why and ive never seen somethign liek this before. I was thinking its the alternator or the battery, but i wanted to see if anyone here knew what it was or has this problem? thank you very much for all who replies!

It's likely just a draw on the cars power output (much like when you turn a vacuum cleaner on in your house and the light dim slightly for an instant) Regardless, you might want to call your dealership and ask about it, they might say its something more serious.
